The other day, while waiting out another storm-related power outage, I decided to stitch down the binding on this sweet little vintage Holly Hobbie quilt. I had put the quilt aside, almost finished, in order to work on a couple of small commissions I need to get finished soon, but today I didn’t have enough light to work on these.
This lovely little kit was aquired some years ago and I had put it together over the winter and finished handquilting it and begun to bind it – so close, but not a finish until now. There is a regulation 4 inch hanging sleeve on back, with the piece of printed identifying fabric from the bottom of the panel attached – so its provenance goes with it.
It was a Paragon 1972 quilt kit containing a backing, batting and the quilt panel. It brought back nice memories of my daughter, who was a toddler at that time.
Anyway, it’s finished now and for sale. Price is $235 USD which includes shipping
