Default $35.00 quilt

A lady in my quilt guild collected antique fabric for years. She was known to talk her way into many an attic! She passed away with a basement full of yards and yards and pieces for antique fabric. Her daughter- also a quilter decided to throw an antique quilt party. For $35. you could go and cut out any size quilt you wanted to. This is my finished queen size quilt. I used antique white muslin(also included with fabric) for the backing -non scrimed wool batting( batting was a gift) and I hand quilted it. It has the softest drape and I love it !!

And thank you to suern3 for posting how to upload pics from you iphone. WOOHOO !!!

What a treasure that quilt is for you! That is great that her daughter shared the fabric in that way. Your quilt is very pretty and the quilting is beautiful.

Simply beautiful! What a lovely way to honor her mother and share with other quilters at the same time. I am sure her mother is smiling down from heaven on all the lovely things being made with her special fabric.
