Great Plains Quilt AKA Spencer Museum Quilt

The Spencer Museum Quilt is done!

I'm actually calling it the Great Plains Quilt since the blocks are from old quilts documented in Kansas. 

My friend Kathy in Ohio quilted it. Contact  her at this address if you need any quilting done.

That isn't a good photo but you can see it was pieced as usual.

It was really nice to bring a little spring indoors. 

I love the little feathers she added. 

The old quilts that the blocks were designed from are in this book. You can read my post about it HERE. 

Here's a glimpse at my week. 

A quick dog walk in the morning after stepping in poo. 

An encouraging word.

LAST CALL for the quilt swap! I'm sending out names this weekend. 
Get all the news on it HERE. 

Love to you all!

  7. I had forgotten all about this quilt.Something that I will need to finish.
    Yours is looking lovely.

  8. A really beautiful finish. Fun to see the close-ups of the quilting.
    Got a chuckle from the mismatched shoes, due to the misstep.
    Was that a randomly placed rock someone just left on the roadside??

  9. I had been meaning to ask if your friend does custom quilting for the public. I assume she does since you gave a contact means for her. She does nice work.

  10. 2 different shoes :0) A lovely finish! The quilting is wonderful and such beautiful applique.

  11. great quilting and wonderful finish!

  12. Love your little quilt. It is nice to have a dog these days I think, it make you have to go outside several times a day. We make a stroll here every day too. Much needed fresh air to clear the head.....
