Quilting the 1930s...

I recently finished quilting a quilt for one of the guilds that I'm in.  It will be their raffle quilt for 2014.  It's a 1930's style quilt with applique in the borders as well as some of the blocks.  I wanted to continue the feeling of the applique vines that are in the border into the remainder of the plain white border area, so I chose to do a vine pattern there as well.  Both the applique border area and the quilted vine area were then echo quilted to unify the two.  For the blocks I did stippling quilting in the background of each one and then simply ditch-stitched the pieced blocks.  The sashings were done with a looping edge stitching.  I'm pleased with how it turned out, and was glad to do it to support my guild as a fund-raising quilt.
