Small Vintage Flowers is the last top in this series and for this one particular client. So much more manageable than the Large version, I was so happy to see how it turned out..
This is such a fun quilt, full of unique fabrics and a design that just seems to take motion. The pieced blocks float on a blue background and can almost be seen sliding from left to right. Sometimes it takes finishing a quilt to see these unique elements.
This quilt, now beautiful, was not without a few challenges. Because it was both hand-pieced and the top had been machine washed, there were issues with structure
You can easily see how washing the top stressed the stitches and created lots of orphan strings. No matter how dank, smelly or musty a quilt top smells, please consult your long arm quilter before throwing it in the wash. Small vintage flowers survived, but a quilt top in lesser condition may not have.
