Tuesday Quilt Project March 29

Hurrah, I have a long term UFO done!

This is my wallhanging in the Nosegay or Bride's bouquet pattern.  I described the start of the project in this post form 2010.  Goodness it has taken me some time to get back to this and finish the handquilting!

The photo cuts off the side borders - same green fabric all the way around.  I used the same fabric (thank goodness I saved it) for the binding.  Vintage fabric and real feedsack is used for the print fabric pieces; unbleached muslin and new solid fabric for the other pieces; and an older reproduction fabric for the border.

This image shows a closeup of the fabric and my handquilting.  So glad this is done.

I am linking up with Connie at Freemotion by the River and Quilt Story as I do most weeks I have blocks to share. Both blog hops have pictures of pretty quilt blocks and other projects.

I have a page on Facebook: keep up with my infrequent quilt posts at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Viridian61/347674418583948?ref=hl

one of my favorite old patterns. I made some nosegays and they can be challenging. Yours are beautiful

I love your quilt. I decided to make one from that block close to 30 years when I was still using a lot of templates and doing a lot of hand piecing and hand quilting. I know I managed to piece one block, but I think that's all. I'm glad you were able to finish yours!

What a beauty! Marvelous colors and piecing. Thanks for sharing.
