Lady with Parasol Quilt

I quilted this beauty for a client whose mother-in-law appliqued the ladies it by hand.


The pieces were coming up so we decided to quilt over them to tack them down better.

I used white thread so that it blends in very well and for a distance you cannot see the threads at all.

Here is the full layout of the quilt. I did not bind it so this was as complete as I worked it.

I’m sharing this project finish on these Linky Parties.

  1. Wow! My assistant (teaching) would bring her quilts in to show me and I am always in awe of the work it takes. Beautiful! ~Aimee theburnedhand.com

  2. Did your grandmother teach you any skills? I have now found a group of gals who I get together with monthly and it's such a wonderful social event – maybe that's why I love it so much 😉

  3. Do you have any of your granny's quilts that you still use or cherish? I hope one day my kids will say how their granny used to make quilts for them and, here it is all loved and used daily on their bed.

  4. Hi Elizabeth, that is beautiful and amazing. My dad and my grandmother made these same pattern however, each block was made with different fabrics, all from her past sewing, this was over 45 years ago but the quilt was never finished as my grandmother fell and broke her hip and then the other.

    Her recovery took its toll and she was never able to get back to her daily tasks before she passed. I still have the blocks my aunt put together but I dont know when it will ever be finished. Now with the machines there is a better chance that it could be finished.
