A bit about this quilt.....
From the pattern by Rabbit Factory ..."Reminiscence"
I only did 9 blocks and omitted the swag border. My thought was to use mine as a wallhanging in my livingroom which, at the time, I had painted to match the tan colours! Change of plan...this will not be going on my livingroom wall now. I know someone who will love to own this. It will be gifted.
All the fabrics for the applique were given to me in kit form by some awesome friends of mine who were members of the Marco Polo Quilt Guild in Saint John, NB, when I lived there in the early 90s. I hand appliqued the blocks using the back-basting method taught to me by a wonderful friend and amazing appliquer, Kathy Barton. Miss you!
May 2011 - There are 175 - 3" nine patch blocks to make up the sashings. Each of those has a triangle sewn to each corner. That's 700 triangles!
March 2013 - started handquilting
May 2020 - Finished! Yahoo! Off my list and off my mind!
