    $200,000. Quilt

    Thought you'd like to see what a $200,000. quilt looks like.

    So, contrary to what most husbands think, there can be value in taking a perfectly nice piece of fabric and cutting it up just to put it all back together again!

    All her work is just amazing. Really nice to speak with also.

    Asking a seamstress to mend is like asking Picasso to paint your garage.

    The minute I saw it, I said Lake Michigan. Can't fool a Michigoose. Beautiful scene and different panoramic setting, but $200,000?

    She deserves the $200,000 prize! I would love to see this quilt in person - it sounds like it is loaded with wonderful details.

    I would love to see this-each panel is 4 feet by 5 feet-20 feet in length altogether. Beautiful!
