Oh the texture that candlewick quilt has lent to your quilt is wonderful! Just the right touch to make it different!
what an awesome idea to use the old candlewick quilt! Love it.
The candlewick texture is quite interesting. I really like your color choices for your 16 patch as well.
Very pretty and looks so cozy and cuddly.
Terryt1955 I nearly didn't go with the candlewick - had major 2nd thoughts. So pleased I went with my initial plan. Thank you.
Sewhappy I thought the same once it was finished, so now I'm leaning towards buying a wool blanket to back it with. Initially thinking minky, but wool is calling my name (plus wool is my 2nd love to fabric). Thank you.
corginole I used a jelly roll of 1930's reproduction I found at a quilt shop here in New Zealand. It's called Grandmothers Garden. Not normally my choice of fabric - but the colors are really great together. Thank you.
