    Stunning way to use the beautiful pillowcases. Your hand quilting is lovely too.

    This is a wonderful quilt. Great way to use those pillowcases. Not to many still embroider pillowcases so this is a great way to showcase an almost lot art.

    What a wonderful idea! You did a great job on this. I have a very few, including a set that I believe were a wedding present my parents received. I'll have to be thinking about how I can incorporate them into something instead of just sitting on a shelf. Donna

    Oh my, this is lovely! You really need to document (write down) the story of this quilt. The history is just fantastic. Create a Word doc. and once finished choose a nice font/size/paper and print it. Place it with a photo of the quilt in a place where all of your important paperwork is located.

    What a lovely history! This story should be shared with the entire quilting world. Wouldn't you love to see it featured in a magazine??
