Quilt Cover Finished.

I finally got all the squares of Bonnet Girl blocked . I could not get it all in one picture but it is ready to be put together with the batting and lining and quilted. It is for a queen size bed. Then I guess the pieces from Mom's box will be done. I did not do anything on it this week but I am hoping that I can get it put together and start quilting. I don't know how long that will take since I am quilting by hand. I will show you the finished product as soon as it is finished. My husband ask me what I was going to do with it. He thinks quilts are made to use. I might let him use it a few nights but I have not figured out yet just how to display it. Guess I will figure that out when the time comes. 05-07-2010

Aliene,
I had a quilt like this when I was a young girl. My grandmother made one quilt for each grandchild and that was the pattern she made for me. You did so well on it!
Thanks for visiting "Faded Ladies" today. I just HAD to come over and visit your place.
Blessings,
Deb
