Five Dollar Beauty

Betty has been busy with her Five Dollar Quilt and it's now up on the frame being quilted. It is really amazingly beautiful.

She has captured the essence of the pieces and created a new masterpiece by combining her garage sale blocks and a box of vintage orphan blocks that mom had been collecting. It's a lovely combinations of muted blues and greys with the occasional hit of colour throughout.

To quilt it she is using a combination of cream perle cotton and regular quilting thread so there will be interesting, rustic threads woven throughout...

randomly meandering across the blocks rather than defining shapes and spaces. Luv it....M

Wow, it looks great. I can't believe you are quilting it already. What a masterpiece.

Did Betty wash this before she put it on the frames? What did she decide to put on the back?
