MAINE ROW QUILT

Row quilt featuring pine trees, birds, houses, leaves, fish, and mountains.

This Maine Row Quilt is beautiful !!! I completed the hand quilting on it in July of this year.  The top was done by my good quilting buddy (SB) of Caribou, ME. I believe she said the pattern was done by a local guild member up there.

SB had started quilting it, and decided to move onto another project so I got to complete the hand quilting. It was so much fun to quilt because each row was different so the quilting design changed with each row. I put in 182 yards of quilting to finish it for her.

Several people saw it at my home in the quilt frame while I was working on it and we all agreed that it was a truly beautiful quilt (even without my hand stitches in it).

The back is a beautiful print of brown bears: 

Backing is a bear print.

The finished size was 88″ x 90″. 

I returned it to her unbound so that is something SB will do over the winter when the snow is flying thick in northern Maine.

I already have so many ideas for quilts, but if I can convince her to loan me the pattern, I may make a Maine Row Quilt for myself.
