Faded Love Ditsy Doileys quilt is now finished. 

And it also has a new name,

which suits it much better!

There is this pretty painted wall nearby so we headed 

there this morning before it got to windy....

You can see a little of the backing fabric, pieced from 

leftover pieces of sheets I have previously used.

I machine quilted around each square , first in the floral 

borders and also in the plain ones.

I then added some hand quilting, using a variety of 

threads .....

The winter sunshine played pretty shadows across it as 

I stitched!

Of course it was appropriate to use a doily as a label!

"Faded Love" finishes at about 60" by 70"

Happy days!

Quilt #3 for 2022

Lifetime Quilt #144

Love it! Glad you got it photographed before this awful week coming along. It's been vile here and I've a few old quilts I've finished that I want to take photos of outside and listening to the weather right now, we have minor flood watch warnings on the eastern side of Melbourne. Oh dear, it has been a long winter. Take care & hugs. I'll email later today.

I think I have just picked up a bit of inspiration. I have a number of "gifted" large floral prints that might go well together with some fussy cutting and a frame. Lovely!

Beautiful finish and perfect name. I really love the vintage feeling of the whole quilt.

This is such a lovely finish. You have combined the doileys and fabrics beautifully and I do like the combination of hand and machine quilting.

I love the name, and I love the work that went into this to highlight these gems from the past!

It turned out beautifully and I love the new name.

Lovely photos Suz. I love how you have framed each of these sweet vintage finds with the florals, and as I commented on IG, such a delighful way to reuse those doilies. Great idea to mix hand & machine quilting too. Is this one a keeper?
