Welcome back to my blog! I have been very busy in my day job but I have a finish to report.
In looking back at my blog entries I found that I started this Film at Five project (Pattern from Wedding Dress Blue Blog) in Spring of 2020, in the heart of Covid lockdown. I used scraps and pieces of vintage fabric, and for background I used unbleached muslin that was left over from quilt backs. No stores were open so I had to dig through my off cuts to get enough for the size I wanted. Here is the final finished quilt, approximately 75 inches square:
Well, a bit of keystoning there! A closer view is below. I used smaller squares that the pattern called for, and adjusted my piecing.
I like the "Sprocket" borders. Just one more close up:
Showing the vintage fabrics and feedsacks that I used. This is quilted by a local long armer that I use frequently - she does a great job. The quilting is a pattern of simple leaves on a vine. The quilt has a thin cotton batting and is bound in the same fabric as the background fabric - more leftover quilt backing.
