China blue Santa Ana

This lovely blue and cream quilt was made a very long time ago, I am not entirely sure when, but it had been used and washed without a wadding liner for some time.  My customer was asked by a friend if she could help in bringing the quilt back to life as it was very sentimental to her.  So my customer added a border to it, fixed the quilt up, and bought it over to me for some quilting.

She chose the "Santa Ana" design, and cream thread.  She had also provided me with a flannel backing, and now the quilt is extremely cosey, and will last a few more years yet.  

I love a quilt with a bit of history.  It was hand pieced too.

I am sure that this will now be cuddled under and enjoyed once more.

This is a photo of it before it was quilted, and you can see it is a lovely quilt even before quilted.  I was asked to attach the binding to the front of the quilt (which is one of my additional services), so that my customer can hand sew the reverse
