Sally Post Quilt

Good Morning! My office desk is covered in 1099's, W2's, and all other assortment of end of the year paperwork that I must get completed. The joys of owning your own business!  Many people pay an accountant to do this, but was encouraged during the 1980's recession to complete them myself and I've continued that until this day.  
With that said, I've done no new sewing since my Wednesday post and thought I'd share photos of my Sally Post quilt which I just took better photos of. 

This is another one that Gay at Sentimental Stitches patterned. The original maker had 3 rows facing out and I love that about this quilt! Check out the original HERE signed and dated by Sally Post in 1854.




 The amazing quilting was done by my long time friend and machine quilter, Kathy McCarty. She's located in Ohio and if you are looking for a quilter, let me know and I'll send you her email. 

Here's my Instagram for the past several days. 

I had a wonderful Zoom lecture with the Northwest Quilters this week. They asked some great questions and now that we are online it's not as easy to turn to the quilt and answer those questions. I'll be adding to my notes! If your guild is looking for a lecture or workshop it is likely I'm available! I'd love it if you'd consider me for your guild. It looks like we'll be online for a few more months at least. 

Have a wonderful weekend.

    1. see how the flower stems point toward the sides and not up and down with the stems going down toward the bottom ( foot) of the quilt?

  4. Your Sally Post is beautiful. I have most of the blocks completed and I am making the pattern on the bias, so I will change the final setting.
    My Beyond the Cherie Trees is done and I love it too.
    I am making the Dottie one, and I am following your progress on that one too.
    Enjoy your quilting time.

    1. I guess I do not understand what that means- making the pattern on the bias. I'd love to know!
