Vintage Pillow Case Quilt Finished

Several posts ago, I shared my vintage pillow cases quilt project in process. I don't know about you, but it is such a big deal for me to decide what to do next each step whenever I create something. Especially in quilt making, a quilt top can look totally different than what I first intended depending on what kind of quilting I do on the quilt. It is not unusual for me to complete a quilt top and not be able to finish it for several months (sometimes years!) because I have a hard time deciding how I want to finish it.

I already shared the process of cutting and piecing...




Are you ready to see how I finished this one? Ta da!




I thought about applying my newly developing (I can't say "developed" yet, it is in progress though) machine quilting skills on this quilt, but I couldn't help going back to the idea of doing hand quilting with large stitches.

I actually made another quilt top using the same blocks that I used for this quilt with some other fabric, but those two quilts look different so far. I can't wait to share the finished quilt with you...well, someday. :)

  3. This is so beautiful! I love the colors in this quilt. It's very feminine looking. I don't have the patience to hand quilt and I admire that. Maybe one day...
    How long does it take you to handquilt one quilt?

  6. I love big hand quilted stitches. In fact, it's something I'd like to learn to do since I've only ever messed around with making very basic quilts with my machine.

  22. I LOVE it. Beautiful. You inspire me to push myself when it comes to quilting- and with my 3 year old having just moved into a big boy bed, he's in need of a nice big quilt!
