I have been putting the finishing touches on a quilt this week. It is the antique quilt I posted about earlier. I enjoyed learning of its history this week as well as I requested information for the label. Being a history buff and a quilter I love it when there is information available for a quilt. I label everything with the name of the quilt, the quilter, date, location. To me it is an important part of the process.
I have to say I like what the brown binding did for this quilt-it really was the finishing touch.
As a special bonus, when I went on the porch to photograph this quilt I discovered this moth. It is a Polyphemus moth, part of the giant silkworm family. The wing-span on this moth was a tad over 6 inches!
Polyphemus was the mythological one-eyed cyclops, mentioned in The Odyssey of Homer.
Sew it goes,
