Aunt Eileen's Antique Quilt





My Aunt Eileen picked up the antique squares in this quilt at Innovations a couple of years ago. The corners were done on a few of the blocks with printed fabric and Aunt Eileen opted to remove all of the corners and created sashing that incorporated the borders. This is a graduation gift for one of her granddaughters. The original quilter created rather wonky blocks that seem to look absolutely lovely in their new setting. I used Permacore thread on top and Sew Fine in the bobbin on the white and printed fabrics, and Sew Fine in top and bobbin in the purple/blue sashing.
