I hope that you are ready for the standard picture overload of a finished quilt, although I must say it was tricky to get a good photo of the whole quilt due to it's size.
The finished size of the quilt is 65 inches x 80 inches with each of the finished squares measuring 5 inches x 5 inches; a simple quilt design. This quilt is all about the fabric and it felt great to be upcycling these vintage fabrics, in addition to working with stash fabrics.
The back of the quilt is pieced and features a horizontal panel of patchwork squares from the same fabrics as used in the quilt top. The straight line quilting grid is a set of double lines of both sides of all seam lines (completed in an epic quilting day - really, this took hours).
I couldn't resist completing this quilt with a black/white striped binding.
This quilt has already been shipped off to it's new owner and is destined to be used in a remodeled 1880's farmhouse. I couldn't think of anything more perfect. It makes parting with this quilt so much easier.
I've spent some time tidying my work space. I even cleared my cutting table to reveal it's surface, all in in preparation for whatever may be next.
