Pioneer Quilt

I wanted to share this quilt that I made in honor of my GrGrGr Grandmother Sarah Goode Marshall, who was a Mormon Pioneer. She pulled a handcart from Iowa to the Salt Lake Valley in 1856.  She brought her sister and 5 children from England to join the pioneers. She was one determined lady!

The quilt is machine pieced, hand appliqued and hand embroidered. Quilting was by Becky Jorgensen of PatchworkPosse.  The fabrics are civil war reproductions and the flowers were designed by Blackbird designs. The log cabin pattern is a replica of a quilt made in the 1800's by one of her daughters. I think it turned out beautiful!!

Happy Quilting!!

I love the image of the woman pulling the handcart? Is it your own design? Would you be willing to share a higher resolution image of that picture?
