Rising Sun

With the satisfaction of finishing my last quilt, I pulled out these quilt squares from my hope chest and finished this quilt up as well. They are all scraps from other projects, and I just love the memories it brings back. This pattern was designed my some good friends of mine and they call it the Rising Sun. I did Civil War reenacting with them for a season, and we all worked on our squares together on a blanket in the shade. Each square has 53 pieces, and is entirely hand sewn.
This is a small quilt, but it is a good size for picnicking. It would also make a very cute little baby quilt. Right now it is just basted together, but eventually I will hand quilt it.
