This month's Mini Quilt with Wendy is one that has been in the works for a Long Time, so I just decided to Finish It! Looking at it now, other fabrics I own come to mind that might have been closer to the original. Do you Second-Guess your choices as much as I do? I handquilted with the big stitch as it seemed appropriate for this piece.
Here's the original AND I found extra photos in another File! I enjoy studying the old fabrics. This was said to be from PA, looks like it might have been done by a child. Some of the fabrics look pretty early!
I think you've captured the spirit of the original quilt beautifully. The original does look as if it was stitched by a young hand, and was dearly loved.ReplyDelete
You did an incredible job of replicating the vintage look and feel of that little quilt. I think your fabric choices really work well.ReplyDelete
That could be the back of the quilt, if you consider that the HSTs may just be bigger on the back. Love the fabric close-ups!
Can't wait to see what you are dreaming up for your June mini.
I adore it! I wouldn't change a single fabric in it. It is perfect! Can't wait to see it in person. I have linked you into the mini post. Hope to get up again soon.ReplyDelete

I definitely agree that you have captured the style and essence of the original little quilt. I second guess myself all the time, but in reality it doesn't really matter. Great job. Can't wait to see some poison green.ReplyDelete
