Wholecloth Quilt

Effie (in her 70's, I'd guess) entrusted me with a quilt top her mother had embroidered so many years ago, and it was time for it to be made into a quilt.

It was an honour to be a part of the history-making!

It was one of my first wholecloth quilts, so it was scarey but exciting, fun, yet alot of work.  I burnt out a switch on my machine while stitching it!

 I used Hobbs Poly-down for the batting, giving it a nice loft.
 The embroidery was lovely!
