Finished! I really enjoyed making this first quilt and plan on doing more. So glad I finally did try my hand at this old craft. It really made me feel connected to my grandmother who was a pro at all the homesteading skills.

Here is a pic of the whole thing and a close-up of the bottom right corner. Thanks for all your tips and encouragement.1-DSCN1962.JPGImage Enlarger1-DSCN1963.JPGImage Enlarger

Thanks!

 

If you click on the photo, you should be able to read the poem embroidered on it. "I see the moon..."
