Heritage Quilt

I am not sure whether this is a UFO or a WIP. I started this quilt several years ago. This summer I pulled it out and finished the piecing. I love it!!!!!

It has many fussy cuts.

Blocks are 12 inches.

Each one is different. Seminole border was fun!

The back is even done.

Complete with its own fussy cuts!

Even the binding is made. Only one problem. How to quilt it!! I would love some suggestions. I am a novice at machine quilting, but I want to do justice to this beauty. Help friends!!!!

Also, I am playing pay it forward!! I threw my name in yesterday over on Dee's blog (see her on the side bar). So here are the rules:
1. You must have a blog to play.
2. The first three people to comment agree to play pay it forward by posting on their blog and playing with the first three people that comment on their blog.
3. I agree to send, sometime withing 365 days, a gift to those same three people who commented on this blog post. (That is the "playing" part!)
There, clear as mud!!
pay it forward
Many blessings,

LOL!!! I drafted this post on Monday, and posted it on Tuesday, and I just realized that it is dated for Monday. Anyone know how to change that? Does it matter?


  1. I love this quilt! In my opinion, you should quilt it with a combination of stitch in the ditch and straight line quilting. I'm sure many would disagree with me but I think stippling distracts the eye on a geometric quilt such as this. On my sampler quilt I did each block separately but kept the quilting evenly distributed on the quilt, in other words no block was more heavily quilted than another.

  2. love your blog and your quilt! I am also one of the gals that get to receive something wonderful from Dee! glad we both are playing along!

  3. What a beautiful quilt, I love the soft colours.

  4. What a beautiful quilt! I know that feeling of getting stuck on the quilting. (Esp on a big quilt!) :) Good luck! I can't wait to see what you do!


I love to hear your thoughts, and I try to respond. Thanks for sharing your time and encouragement!
