Sally Post Ta-Da! and Whew!

 All 36 blocks appliqued and set! Barb V asked a very good question on my last post. Why are the blocks sideways? Sally made her quilt so you could enjoy it from either side of the bed! LOL
 So, the quilt half on the right faces that direction and the other side faces that direction. I took a poll this summer while in Sunriver and I was leaning toward keeping it quirky and that was the consensus, as well.
 Or you could look at the bottom half while getting your pjs on and the top half when you are in bed. Now I'm not sure where to put a label! lol
 I just walked over the quilt and took close ups. Obviously I didn't bother to crop or turn.







And if you've never heard of the Sally Post quilt, you can purchase the pattern from
Gay Bomers of Sentimental Stitches.. When she reproduced her vintage quilt she offered it for free. Thank you Gay! And thank you all for your positive words to keep me going on this long term project.

  3. It it looks beautiful!! I love the pink and red together and the blocks are so pretty. I just love that striped Cherry tree block - I would never think to use a stripe that way. Keeping the quirkiness is fun!

  4. Wonderful finish, Lori! I had decided I would set mine the same way. I have all the applique done on mine but have not sewn the sashings as of yet. Your finish reminds me to get busy on it.

  14. It's gorgeous, Lori! Well done! The side to side blocks made me think of long ago, when folks used to kneel by the bedside and say their prayers every night......maybe that's why they placed blocks that way!

    1. Janet, there is no email associated with your comment so I hope you check back here. My long term hand quilting project is my Cherry Tree quilt so this will be machine quilted.

  40. Beautiful work Lori, love your fabrics.

  41. Sally would be proud of how you co completed your quilt. I love the setting too.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Exquisite! Bravo! Love the fabric you picked for the sashing too. It is definitively worth all the time invested in it. Now for the label ... why not continue the quirkiness and attached it behind the middle sashing and write half of it on the left and half of it on the right ... just my two pennie. :^)
    I am sure the quilting will turn this one into a Masterpiece. Again, bravo!
