This is such a quilt. After the blocks had all been pieced together, the quilter finished the quilt using diagonal and straight line quilting throughout. In perfect, unused condition. Due to the fact that these fabrics do not have a printed design the quilt is easy to combine with any decor The blocks and strips were then sewn by machine giving you a sturdy piece to work with. This quilt would be an amazing art piece for your wall.
