Antique blue-white quilt (1880-1890)

Quilting means a lot of ironing (strijkijzeren as Marne would say), not my favorite part of the process. But when it's a done the quilt is ready to finish. I decided to tie this quilt, because originally it was tied. There are 1190 squares in this quilt. That means 1122 square knots to tie.
I have to hurry up a little bit, because I'm using my dining-table. Next days (or maybe weeks) dinner on the sofa.

Oh - isn't it so lovely? And a new iron - wow that is pretty exciting. More stars for me to work on, around here. Skype message sent.
