Default Grandma's Strippy 1930's reproduction

I have been several years in the piecing of this top just for me. Had a tiny block of time the other day as our roadway was being oiled, keeping me at home and customers at bay, so I loaded up this top and played all day. Using Hobbs 80/20 batting, white thread and quilting with terry twist and feathers - what a great day!! I stitched the binding to the front before I removed it from my Gammill (no computer nor stitch regulator) so now all I need to do is hand stitch the binding down on the back. Hope you enjoy!

So nice that you got to finish one for yourself. I have 2 to finish up for Xmas and then I plan on making/finishing some quilts for me.
