    Antique Nine Patch

    Joanne rescued these antique quilt blocks that were left unfinished by someone years ago. The fabrics are 30's and the blocks all hand pieced. She let me quilt it however I wanted so I chose large daiseys to match the happy fabrics. I have to wonder if the person who started the quilt would approve of how I finished it. It is 55X55 and she plans to use it as a table cloth in her sun room.

    wow I love what you did with it. The quilt makes me think of my grammy and stuff she made. You did a great job accenting the fabric and make the quilt sparkle.
