54-40 or Fight
“54-40 or Fight” is the name of one of the blocks Ellen used for this quilt. She alternated them with different blocks to achieve a secondary circular pattern. Isn’t this an amazing quilt? Ellen usually quilts her own quilts but this one is a special gift, and I was happy to quilt it for her. She had even come up with most of the quilting design before she dropped of her quilt, she wanted it to emphasize the secondary circles. For the back, she pieced her leftover fabrics and blocks, and I really like how the quilting looks from the back, like stars and flowers on a cross-hatched background. What a fun project to work on!
