The quilt covers 11,390 square feet, a faithful reproduction of the state of North Dakota with every county a different color. Volunteers from 53 North Dakota counties helped stitch the quilt. It was the largest in the world until the AIDS quilt came along; now it’s known as the world’s largest historical quilt.
Leona Tennyson was responsible for putting it together with a measurement 85 ft. by 134 ft.
Now for the update on the lovely old log cabin…
Here is where I was last time ….
I had just rolled working on the first block to your right. I am a very short armed person so with the roll getting larger that I have to put my arm under while working with the other arm on top , I can no longer work a whole block. I just did the lower half all the way across , reaching the last block on this set of blocks.
last block that I’m working on
I did get a quilt that I had finished quilting in 2015 bond!😱
looks nice on my bed.
That’s it for me this round! Hope all enjoyed their Thanksgiving day.
