Bloggers Quilt Festival Fall 2012 is happening now. I thought I would show off the Grandmother square quilt that me and my mom, Betty and Aunt Myrna did together. We started this quilt over a year ago and got it finished this summer. Betty and Myrna did the piecing and consulted with me on many occasions. We had a great time shopping for all the fabric. We had two major shopping trips. Then Betty and Myrna worked on the top. I quilted a runner for Myrna to try out the quilting and then did the bigger quilt this summer.
We made this quilt to donate for a raffle. The little one room school my dad and his brothers went to is now a community hall and is in need of a new roof. We have made this as a thank you for the years the boys went to school. They all three continued on to University.
We used mostly civil war reproduction fabrics and a Moda fabric in brown for background and sashings. I used feathers on each of the blocks. and a feather on the outer pieced boarder. There is a little filler quilting on the brown.
