Q1 Finish Along - 4th Finish

Talk about long overdue!  Number 4 on my Q1 FAL list!
This is exactly what is sew great about the goal setting of the Finish Along!
I FINISHED the first of 5 Dresden quilts!
These Dresden blocks were made by my maternal Great Grandmother, Gertrude McClary Artherholt, of Red Oak, IA! Entrusted to me by my Mother several years ago, you may see the original post with photos here. The blocks are precious, and the fabrics provide endless raptures :)
The youngest and I took a few minutes this morning to take some photos down in the old river bed near the house.
It was fun! Nash insisted on this one, with me in it :)
Here is my cheerful "martyr"...I insisted on this one with him in it :)
So, Grandmother, here is one, finished! :)

Linking up with Lorna and pals @ Let's Bee Social :)

So beautiful! What a fun way to continue on with a project. We have some sunbonnet sue blocks made by my great, great grandmother that are similar. Such amazing colors and stitches. I've finished one.

The Dresden Blocks would have made a stunning large quilt together but after reading your earlier post I understand why they are being made into several smaller quilts. What an honour to work on these special quilts.

The quilt and the photos are great, Sarah! I think that's wonderful that your son was willing to help out with the photo shoot.

Cheryl said...

Great finish! I loved to hear the history behind the blocks.

Oh what a beautiful finish - and how special to be using your great grandmother's dresdens! Thank you for participating in the 2016 FAL, on behalf of the global FAL hosts :o)
