Antique Quilt and A Finish


Good Monday Morning Chick a dee's.

I am so in love with this antique quilt.   I repaired it for a customer who wants to hand it down to his daughter.  It was such a pleasure to repair.  Each stitch keeping in mind the sweet hands that stitched it originally, wanting to make her proud.   I just love this pattern.  Some of the blocks where made out of flour sacks and some out of old clothing.  You just have to admire the quilt maker for using what she had.   Does anyone know what the name of the block is?    


I finished this quilt last year but never finished the binding.   It is finally all complete.  The pattern is called Blissful Day out of Quilt Magazine (not sure what year).  I am pretty sure the fabrics I used was an Urban Chicks line.  Forgot to take a picture of the back, the back is red with white pin dots and the binding is a red and white gingham.  

Hope you have a great sewing day.

Hugs
donna

  1. I believe the name of the block is Glorified Nine Patch. That ric-rac makes the Bliss!

  4. Your antique quilt looks like one I got from my nanny, I did a blog post on the name here: http://missyscakesandaprons.blogspot.com/2012/06/circle-upon-circle-quilt.html It has several names, circle upon circle and double nine patch, etc. Your finished quilt looks great!
