    My good friend and customer, Mary, brought me this antique top of flowers which her mother hand embroideried and colored. Mary chose stippling behind the flowers and crosshatching on the sashing. I added a small freehand flower in the cornerstones. Hobbs 80/20 batting was used. No computer nor stitch regulator.

    Truly an heirloom and your quilting really accentuates the blocks. Thanks for sharing.
