I'm happy to finally post a picture of this quilt that I started last January. I finally finished machine quilting it last month and finally got a picture taken.
This quilt is named for my 4X Great Grandmother, Hancy Pitcairn Reynolds Greene Warren. Hancy was born in Massachusetts in 1809. She married Seth Greene and lived in Bennington, Vermont and had a son, Charles. Seth died when Charles was 10 years old and Hancy remarried to Charles Warren. The Warrens eventually settled in Cedar Falls, Iowa. Hancy died there in 1881.
A picture of Hancy, actually a "tintype", came to me with some family things.
Here's a link to Barbara's blog, Barbara Brackman's MATERIAL CULTURE, where she shows my quilt in the making. I was working on it at a retreat we both attended. This was posted February 20, 2012. And there is a link to the pattern, which I scaled down a bit. http://barbarabrackman.blogspot.com/search?updated-max=2012-02-22T06:00:00-06:00&max-results=7&start=51&by-date=false
My quilt is about 48'' x 48''
