One of my friends was re-quilting an old quilt for another friend. It was pieced with authentic 40s fabrics and made by her mother (now deceased). Although it had been “tied” it needed to be quilted to reinforce and sustain it. I suggested using the Clothesline pattern. Our mutual friend was thrilled. It actually complimented the wonderful heritage fabrics and reminded her of her mother in the days of “hanging out the clothes.”.
