Happy Memorial Day!
as a child this was always one of my favorite holidays....still is today. I grew up in a town that had a great parade and always went to the best bar b ques , funny how certain things you remember from your childhood.
this is one of my favorite little quilts I have ever made. I hand quilted using one of my favorite all over quilting patterns, baptist fans.
I tried to replicate the antique quilt even down to the binding, big leap for me at the time! The binding didn't match the quilt!!!
I used an appropriate backing fabric don't you think?
Something I am trying to do more and more of, using fun backs on little quilts, I actually search out fabrics just to use for backs now, thanks to Barb! the queen of great backing fabrics!
every once in a while I run the clothes lint brush over my little quilts to get the dust off . This little quilt is always out on one of my antique singer sewing machine tables I have so it does get dusty , I admit!
The antique quilt is in the Small Endearment Book by Sandi Fox, a great source of inspiration for me.
next little quilt to bind, this one was machine quilted with baptist fans.
