This Old Quilt


This old quilt is one of my favorites. It was a group effort from several ladies from a guild that I was once a member. The quilt started with the eagle and all the other blocks were made from that patriotic theme.
Paper piecing, applique`, templates and other methods were used throughout the process.
I'm sorry to say that I don't have a close-up of this quilt. At the time, it was hand quilted by guild members (me included) and auctioned off to a wonderful couple who collect unique quilts.
I have seen the quilt once since it was auctioned. The couple said that everyone who looked at it were always amazed to see what all went into it.

It definately is amazing. So much work has gone into it and I hope the owners of it really treasure it :)

I love these kinds of quilts...so much to look at and enjoy. One of these days I hope to make a quilt with hundreds of scrappy blocks.
