Default Finished Grandma's Quilt

This quilt was handpieced by my grandmother about 50 - 60 years ago. It was recently given to me and I decided it deserved to be handquilted. It took forever and as my first handquilting project, it is far from perfect but I am so proud to have completed it. Please enjoy.

Wonderful "GMs periwinkle" quilt. I love the way you mimicked the block with your quilting. Very much like it would have been done years ago. What a lovely treasure.
peace
