My granny square quilt is finally finished! Yay! This quilt top had been sitting for awhile to get quilted, so yesterday I worked hard to get it done. I have another quilt that I planned and started last year, that I really want to work on, so I thought I better get this one finished first.
I already washed and dried it to give it that crinkly goodness that I love.
I adore all the pretty colors, and prints together. I did a simple straight stitch around the squares.
I used a vintage yellow wreath rose sheet for the backing. I had a some trouble with the sheet puckering, even though I taped it taught to the floor and pinned like crazy when I basted it.
This is only my 4th quilt that I have done, so I know that I am in need of practice. Would love to hear if you have used a vintage sheet for a quilt and if you had any problems or have a secret tip when quilting with one!
For the binding I chose a pretty aqua calico, which came out so sweetly.
So, a lovely quilt for those cold fall and winter days, which I know or at least hope are coming! ;)
This beautiful vintage piece was one of my first treasures. I am still not really sure what it was used for, or the proper name for it.
The detail is beautiful, with all of it's curved lines, and twisty poles on the bottom.
The top is a velvety tan with a sweet ribbon around the edge.
This is one piece that I love, and would never do anything to change it. I store quilts in the bottom part, and have a bucket of yarn goodness that sits on top. Do you know what it is or what it was originally used for?
Wishing you a lovely and crafty day!!
