Quilt In Progress

Jill in Michigan, the Great Lakes State, USA
This week I am squeezing sewing time in the morning (first things first) in order to work (only 1-2 blocks per day) on piecing together the last six unfinished blocks on my current quilt.  It will be a scrap-style quilt made of brown and pink reproduction fabrics from the Civil War era. 
I contemplated setting the blocks traditional, but I prefer the above set on point:
I started out leisurely hand piecing, but now I am machine piecing.  I will hand quilt it and am anxious to start on the actual quilting process.
It’s amazing the difference how nice fabric pieces look when pieced together as you can see below:

  1. You are a woman of my own heart. I can't vision an 1880s repro quilt machine quilted. Hand quilting it will be. It seems to be more challenging to match points on the machine vs my hand piecing. LOL!
