    Geri's 30's reproduction quilt

    Geri is such a sweet lady. She sent this gorgeous top that she pieced and appliqued to me for quilting, with directions for me to do whatever I wanted. I decided on crosshatching, Terry Twist, McTavishing and a simple motif in the center of each "star" block. Hobbs 80/20 bleached batting was used with white thread throughout. Sorry, but I failed to take a picture of the back of Geri's quilt. I was so thrilled with her beautiful front, the piecing, colors and applique that I never thought about the back.

    BRAVO to both of you!! Stunning quilt and quilting!!

    I love repro's paired with white using traditional blocks and applique border. It's just so homey looking.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I really should try to make a 'proper' quilt too. This one is gorgeous and far more work than I've ever accomplished to date.

    It's beautiful!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)
