Old School: Hand Quilting

I've been working on hand quilting this very small antique (circa 1890's) quilt top for my mom. It's been a lot of fun and isn't in terrible shape for it's age.

I am not sure if I will actually finish it before her visit here. I am thinking at this point that I won't make it, but we'll see...

This morning we are heading out to do some photography and for a family adventure in San Francisco. It's a bit of a drive for us, but it's worth it.

We're going retro with our photography and shooting film. My son saw my husband loading up a camera and organizing film canisters and asked, "What's film, Daddy?"

Wow, am I really that old? Guess so! Here's to some good old school fun.

I like the contrasting thread. Good luck on finishing. When you say "small" I wonder how much you will have to do.

Such a beautiful shot. Lovely quilting. Must be special quilting an old top - sigh. I'm looking forward to seeing the whole quilt:)
