Knitting Intermission - A Finished Quilt

I have FINALLY finished hand quilting and binding the 1930s quilt. My one and ONLY adventure into 1930 reproduction feed sack fabrics and quilts. It took me 3 days to sew the quilt top together - that was about 3 years ago! I then decided that to continue with the 1930s theme I should hand applique and hand quilt it.....Well here it is 3 years later - Most likely the last quilt that I will ever hand quilt. Dave is patiently holding it up for the picture - by this time his arms are getting very tired! This is the only quilt I've ever made that he doesn't like - It looks "like a grandma quilt". I like it though - something so innocent about those times and this quilt.
