    customer quilt...quilted by Heather

    I got this lovely quilt to do for a very nice customer. Her grandmother made it for her. That means it is extra special. I thought I was very lucky to get to work on such a wonderful quilt and a great customer.
    The last photo shows it before it was finished being quilted. Thanks for looking!!!

    It looks like it is made of Fortrel/Polyester. That fabric will be around for centuries.

    It is very nice. My grandmother made several of these as well.

    It is. This was already finished and just being redone. Also, she hand pieced all all the squares together. It was so much fun to work on this quilt.

    It is a treasure. I know what it is like to love a quilt and wear it out. This has given it new life and she can use it for many many years.
    enjoy your life...it's the only one you have!!!
