Benjamin Biggs Wedding Quilt

 My quilt, which only looks a little like the original, is complete! Whoop! Whoop!
 The wind was blowing, but I did my best to get some decent photos.
 Sharon did a great job with the quilting. It was just what I wanted- a simple all-over pattern.

The buds in the block corners add a uniqueness and character to this quilt. Mine don't come close to meeting or being symmetrical. I love it- it's the Humble Quilt way.

If you want to know more about the Benjamin Biggs wedding quilt you can read it HERE. The antique was 5x5 blocks and measured 100" square and is from Indiana and made for Benjamin and Elizabeth Biggs. I love knowing the history of the quilts we recreate. Thank you Gay for your history and the excellent job of recreating these unique quilts! You can purchase the quilt blocks from Gay at Sentimental Stitches HERE.
