Quiet Quilting

Tonight I did some quiet quilting on this old fashioned friendship quilt I’m working on. I’ll use the quilt for reenactments and then embroider the name of the event and some of the dear friends (and new ones!) who were also at the event. My awesome mother gave me the idea for the quit- thanks Mom!

Here are some photos of what I did tonight:

To get ideas for quilt blocks I typed in things such as “Civil war quilt blocks” and “Old fashioned quilt blocks” into Google. Then I printed the images of some I wanted to try out and cut the shapes out to use as stencils. I’m quite pleased with the way these turned out!

These are quilt blocks I have completed previously. I love putting quilt blocks together and seeing all the different fabrics and patterns come together!
