Finished! Hand Applique and Hand Quilted quilt

 

I've finished the quilt that was in the frame. How this quilt came to be is one of those...oh my gosh I made a mistake and it was a good one. 

Years ago, I made a wedding quilt for my daughter and I divided the quilt into panels so it would be easier to applique..there were 6 panels--2 center panels and four side panels. I had started to applique the second center panel when I realized that it was the bottom panel and I had already finished it! I "immediately" got to work on the top panel of course.

I baste all my applique pieces on and then do the applique so here it was-the repeat bottom panel-all ready to be put in the closet to be finished all on its lonesome someday and that day is today!

Your applique quilt is a beauty! It reminds me of the beautiful quilts of the 1930's. Love all the diagonal hand quilting; it adds gorgeous texture. A most beautiful finish!
