1800's Vintage Quilt QAL - Still piecing

I got all the 9 components all pieced, now to put it all together.  I don't think I'll work homespun or wovens with muslin again.  First there was so much fraying with the wovens and then because the wovens has more give compared to muslin which practically has none there was a lot of wiggling, puckering and frustration!

I may have to unpick here and there but I hope it'll come together somehow :)  Since there are so many small seams I am thinking that machine quilting will be more suitable.


  1. Your quilt looks amazing! I love it!

  2. Oh I can't wait to see what this one will look like once finished. I totally dig these 'earth tone' colours on things like blankets and covers.

  3. I don't know Paul if I like them anymore after working on this project :( The squares are so tiny at 1-1/4". I'll be happy as a pea when I finally piece it all.

    There's a quilt I made for my dad some years back that is all 'earth tones'. You can view it here:
