Aunt Lucy is Quilted

Just an update regarding my Aunt Lucy Quilt.  I have finished quilting and binding her.  The fun thing about this quilt is that it has a wonderful collection of Reproduction Fabrics.  This was possible because I participated in a block of the month program at Quilter’s Common in Wakefield, MA.  Thus I did not have to purchase one bit of fabric more than required and still got this wonderful scrappy quilt.

The quilting was a bit of an adventure for me.  I printed patterns that I sized to fit the blocks and borders and used the laser light on my longarm machine to trace them.  This is the second time I have turned a quilt to do the borders.  I did a test run with a little panel quilt (that still needs a binding).  I am happy with the results.

I found the patterns I used in this quilt in May Covy’s Follow the Line’s Quilting Designs, Volume 5, Authentic Civil War Designs and More
