It took me a semester to piece it since I took a class thru the parks and recreation dept. The handquilting I did in about two weeks cause I was driven to get it done. I put up a couple of sawhorses with a couple of two by twos and stuck it over the living room couch and just quilted away. I will try and get some of my more recent quilt pictures posted. Thanks all for the compliments. This one will always be near and dear to my heart cause it set me off on a wonderful adventure in the world of quilting.
