It's all freshly ironed and and folded to hang over my railing. It's called "A Vintage Nine-Patch". St. Dunstan's 2014 raffle quilt is done, and ready to deliver.
The vintage quilts used to be made out of re-purposed cloth and favor was not given to pattern or color matching. Utility and function was the name of the game in the old days. It's charming, don't you think?
The label was stitched in a blue thread to match the setting triangles and bias binding is all made and freshly ironed and it's hanging along the right side. It's a darker shade of blue and should frame the quilt quite nicely. After Christmas, this quilt will be hand quilted by the St. Dunstan's quilters with straight lines for an authentic look.
Since they know I'm delivering this quilt to them today, the quilters have invited me to a Christmas Mass followed by a luncheon. For me, such a nice way to hand over the quilt.
