Photos

I had only ever taken one photo of my Mary Mannakee although it hangs in my Living Room on a quilt holder and I see it every day. Forgetting just how large this quilt is and not having helpers to hold it up the photos are of it on the floor.
 
 
 
 
 



 
Six years old and I still haven't unpicked and  sewn the date the right way up! In the class I went to the other participants didn't like the original centre so it was changed. This is a Summer Throw and does not have wadding, backing fabric or quilting. I stitched the blocks and borders together using French seams so there are no raw edges The outer edge has a 1/4" hem.

How lovely to see your Mary Mannakee work. I have the pattern and have made a couple blocks to go with my eclectic Baltimore style collection. It is so awesome to see your many photos on your blog of beautiful quilts. You are an amazing and prolific quilter/appliquer!

Wow! It's gorgeous. I have heard of summer quilts that have a backing but no batting but I had never thought of making a quilt with neither backing or batting. It would be perfect for summer!
