What do you do when your sister calls you asking for a quilt for her best friend?! You go to your stash of almost finished quilts and finish it! I originally called this “The Big O Quilt” but when my sister explained that her friend did a huge favor for her, I changed the name to “Big Hugs Quilt”! I didn’t have a quilt pattern, it’s half square triangles and squares arranged to make a big “O”. It’s a great use for a fat quarter bundle that you don’t know what to do with!
While it seems I’m only quilting for myself, I have been very busy quilting for others! Here’s an antique/vintage Dresden Plate quilt quilted with freehand feather meander.Some of the plate wedges were very worn and faded but most were in good shape, It’s fun to stitch old quilts and observe the fabric designs and fabric type!
