    Antique squares incorporated into contemporary quilt

    I found these Hole in the Barn Door blocks at an antique store in Van Wert, Ohio years ago and incorporated them into a king size quilt for my son and wife. The backing is a USAF pattern. I used a good quality muslin and did all free motion quilting following a stencil.

    Very pretty. I always called this pattern the Monkey Wrench or Churn Dash. But, a rose by any other name would smell as sweet. You did great~~
