    This was done by a sweet little older lady. The piecing wasn't perfect but she did a fantastic job anyway. I had some fullness in it that I was afraid if I overquilted it, it would create folds. She absolutely loved it!!!

    Wow! Are you saying you made the quilt top and she stitched the sandwich? Your work is awesome. Just awesome. The stitching looks like it should be on a wedding dress. It is magnificent. How'd she do that? Did she hand stitch it? If this quilt were in the same house with me I would get nothing done because I would be looking at the intricate detail in this quilt. Wow!
    (sweet little 'older') lady. How much is older? My daughter's great great grandmother was 107 this year. yep.

    you did a beautiful job quilting. and was a nice job on the quilt. i wish you lived close to me. my quilter i have used a couple times, just follows the pantagram across. not real artistic. but i think that was what you call a custom quilting job, wasn't it?

    I did the machine quilting, the customer (approx. age 70's) pieced the top. The applique is done by hand.
