Grandmother's Choice by Stitch & Knit


Grandmother's Choice
by Stitch & Knit
79" x 79"

Another finished top from 49 blocks!
Blocks on point alternating with a half-square-triangle block.

It looks like a strip quilt but it's constructed block-by-block.


In the center she printed photos
of her mother, grandmothers and a great-grandmother.

Cats and Mice by Stitch & Knit

The color emphasis: Browns and pinks popular in
the 19th century.

A beautiful sampler.

  1. This quilt is breathtaking! I love the way the setting HST's give the appearance of columns, it adds so much design interest. And those 1800's fabrics are to die for. Thank you for showing this one!

  2. Sometimes I wonder what quilts being made now will be exhibited as masterpieces in the next century. Looking at the work you post, I think there will be a lot of amazing quilts that will fill up acres of museum space!
