Choosing a design for an heirloom quilt can be daunting, but so rewarding!
This vintage quilt was made by my Great Grandma Peveto circa 1930. The design is "nosegay," It was pieced entirely by hand and the bouquets are all hand appliqued.
The photo below demonstrates the transitions between heavy and light quilting designs. A double layer of batting was used to enhance the applique and all seams were ditch quilted. Approximately 80 hours were invested in this queen size quilt project -- very much worth the time!
The back reminds me of ice cream cones and is its own work of art!
