Vintage family quilt for Phoebe

This is a large quilt, made of blocks made by members of Phoebe's family. A few were made by hand, most were machine pieced. Lots of Y seams and bias edges in this one. Very unusual block and some wonderful vintage fabrics. No repros here...
This is one of my favorite fabrics with little Bambies :0) The variety of fabrics were incredible. All of the blocks were assembled and sashed by Phoebe's mother late in her lifetime of sewing. Blocks were made by aunts, cousins and mom, each one of them different. There were several family quilt tops and this is one that Phoebe chose. She is very happy to have this very special quilt quilted.

Quilted with a feather block design from One Song Needle Arts in a natural cream thread. I received an extra hug from Phoebe for this one! Thank you Phoebe :0)

  1. What a charming quilt! And that traditional-like pattern with an octagon shape looks like an excellent choice..
