Hannah's Inspiration

Hannah was my great grandmother's sister. In 1877 she made a quilt with over 10,000 pieces. I found the information in a small article in a Linesville, PA newspaper.

Hannah's Inspiration has 4440 pieces in the center. It has 120 blocks. By time I finished the last block, I never wanted to make another pineapple block again. That has changed, as I am making another pineapple quilt.

Hannah's Inspiration is made with shades of four colors, red, blue, yellow/gold, and green. There is white in some of the fabrics I chose. In the blocks, I used some of the same fabrics, but every block is constructed differently.

And, the back is pieced....................

What's on My Design Board

13 July 2009
I worked on these blocks at the quilt retreat this past weekend. The blocks on the right are not finished, I ran out of strips. At the moment it doesn't look like much. It is all batiks.

Patriotic Quilt America, America God shed his grace on thee And crown thy good with brotherhood From sea to shining sea
78 Flavors of Batiks
I need to piece a back, quilt, and then bind.
The quilt gets it's name because it has 78 different batiks in it.
When it is finished, I will make a pattern
