1790 Eagle Quilt Finished!

Last month I showed this quilt as a WIP (work in progress).  It is now finished after 3 weeks of hand quilting, every night for 2-3 hours.  I am pleased with how it turned out.  Forgive my photos as I am not great at taking photos of whole cloth quilts.  The quilt is white white not a cream white.

The quilt is 20 in square and hand quilted.  The front and back look like mirror images of each other.  Here is the front:

Here is the back:
Here is a photo of the eagle detail (from the back).
Here is a photo of one of the corners.

This quilt will be part of the Eagle Motif Wallhanging Decade by Decade Project and represents the decade 1790-1800.
