1718 quilt finished

My  '1718 coverlet' reproduction quilt is finished!!!!!







 The quilting is very simple and done with my Pfaff sewing machine with invisafil thread by Wonderfil around the little blocks and the big applique shapes.

The backing fabric is a Japanese woven fabric and a linen/ cotton mix fabric.

 I just wrote the information on the back with a permanent marker, I know... I didn't take the time  to make a nice label, but this does the job as well.

I washed the quilt and dried it flat on a bed, followed by a short 15 minutes program in the dryer.




The quilt is made by me using the pattern from the book by Susan Briscoe:

'The 1718 Coverlet: 69 Quilt Blocks from the Oldest Dated British Patchwork Coverlet'. 

Not only the pattern is in the book but it is also nice to read about the history from the original 1718 coverlet.
It was really a great joy to work on this quilt!!!!
Have a nice Sunday!



Groetjes

Fantastisch! Wat een prestatie, ik weet dat het een lastige quilt is om te maken, ken ook quilters die ermee bezig zijn. Een hele mooie quilt geworden, heerlijk duidelijk kleuren dat kan deze quilt echt gebruiken. En mooi gequilt.
Vraagje: je schrijft dat je de quilt eerst droogt door deze op een bed te leggen en daarna 15 min in de droger doet, klopt dat? Ik probeer nog steeds uit te vinden wat de beste manier is om een quilt te wassen en te drogen. En op welk programma en temperatuur was je de quilt? Alvast dank!
