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, and the quilting design changed with each row. I put in 182 yards of quilting to finish it.
Several people saw it at my home in the quilt frame while I was working on it. 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.
The finished size was 88″ x 90″.
I returned it to her unbound because SB will do over the winter when the snow is flying thick in northern Maine.
I already have so many ideas for quilts. However, if I can convince her to loan me the pattern, I may make a Maine Row Quilt for myself.
