This quilt was made from embroidered blocks that had been sitting in a drawer for at least 35 years. I cross hatched those blocks with white thread to secure all of the stitching and to make the quilting almost invisible. Now these blocks will be enjoyed for many years to come.
Wide sashing needed a little color and a lot of interest.

Large border is cross hatched with four petal flowers in the stitching.
