Whetstones and Chips

This is the third, and sadly final, quilt that we got to see. 

This one is Whetstones and Chips, dated from the 1840s and it apparently travelled all the way over from Scotland.

There was amazing applique done along the borders.

A close up of the other motif.

I don't know if you can see it, but a few of the mariners compass blocks needed a few repairs.

This shot shows the quilting.  These larger lines are made with three lines of straight quilting placed very close to each other.  There were also intricate feathers quilted in and around each of the blocks.

Than you for sharing all of these. I would love to see them in person.
