    This Tennessee Waltz quilt measures approximately 52" x 70", so could be a large crib quilt, lap quilt or a even cover a twin mattress, whatever you like--it almost covers the top of my queen size mattress.

    The Tennessee Waltz is a combination of two blocks, the 54-40 or Fight! and the Snowball block, which, when combined, form a secondary circular-looking motif.

    This quilt is machine pieced and completely hand quilted by me. Quilt is completed with a "Quilted by Hand" label on one of the back corners.

    All fabrics are 100% cotton. The quilt has all the character of hand quilted items so it's one of a kind.

    Each blue star is a different blue fabric and the corner 4 patch squares of those stars are in various scrappy colors. The backing is the same as one of the front stars and can be seen in the last picture below:

    Payment by postal money order, please. Quilt will ship as soon as money order is received. Thanks for looking! [​IMG]

    Cynthia, it is beautiful!! Wish I had the time and space to do more quilting. Alas, I do a baby quilt or two each year and that is all. I also knit and do other crafts, so I am creating something. Good luck finding a lucky buyer.

    Thanks, Theri! I do need to find a buyer for this quilt soon so I can move it out and do another. Not much room for more quilts here as long as I keep making them!

    Plus, you will then have more money to spend on your chickens [​IMG]

    I have 2 Blue Orp cockerels out here that are getting all full of themselves. The lighter of the two is the boss of the yard and even gives me "a look". I think about your Suede every time I stop and look at the two boys. I am looking forward to when they all mellow out again.

    I am sure you will find someone to take the quilt off your hands. It takes someone who appreciates the time and love that goes into a quilt to buy one. Have you tried to sell on etsy.com? If you don't get anyone on here, you should give that at try.

    I have access to an etsy shop, yep. May try that if no one buys it this week. I changed it to a BIN with shipping included after this one ended so no actual bidding required.
