So this is M's finished quilt. After a couple of years, from start to finish, I still love it! It was a kit purchased from a local quilt shop, and started before M was on his way. I quilted it with the "Baptist Fan" pattern in the center, which is a series of concentric arcs stacked next to and beside each other. I chose a simple cable for the border, and I think it sets off the center quilting quite nicely.
This is a quilt that my mother just recently found in my grandmother's linen closet. The label, which you can see in the lower left corner says "pieced by Rachel Cox and quilted by Blanche Cox" . Rachel Cox was my great-great grandmother, and Blanche Cox my great grandmother. I can't wait to get to see this quilt in person!
