Dear Hannah in Colorado



While in Colorado, Mom and I visited the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum for its latest exhibit, quilts by Ann Elliot whose Baltimore Album quilts are all hand-quilted. They were masterful, and I particularly enjoyed seeing her version of Dear Hannah. The individual blocks weren't quilted but the sashing featured big-stitch quilting with black perle cotton. Quite effective!

I have the book for that quilt and wished I hadn't bought it. I lost interest in it quickly for some reason. The one you picture though is pretty. Have you thought to make that one? I have not really heard of many people who made it after they bought the book.

What a super quilt. I never would have used white/cream sashing with all those darks and brights, but it is very effective.

I do love the big stitch quilting in the sashing. Reminds me of how I quilted your blocks from last year.
