Antique Quilt Border is Quilted!

This quilt has been slow-going lately. It's a little too large to be hand-quilting in the driver's seat of our 5-speed that I zoom around in when I just have one or two children with me, so I've just been working on it at home, which is hardly ever. But a big milestone...the entire border is hand-quilted with hand-drawn Baptist fans.


I just have a few blocks to quilt, and 2 rows of the sashing. So I'm nearly there!

woohoo, those fans are fabulous. You did a great job on them and I love how they look with this crumby quilt.

Great quilt Joan. Love the border quilting. I think the hardest part of that is marking it.
