Here is a picture of a quilt that I just finished hand quilting for my oldest daughter. She had made the quilt top and began the hand quilting for her sister's Christmas I believe in 2003. She went to work and with two daughters of her own, didn't get back to the quilting. What makes this quilt so special is the fact that my daughter's best friend had a "quilting day" with her and some of the hand stitches are from her. She passed away suddenly at the age of 35 years old. I took the quilt home with me (I live in Maine and daughters live inIllinois) this past January. I finished the hand quilting and was able to keep all previous stitiching in tact. My youngest daughter finally got her Christmas Present for 2003 in June 2007!! She loves it.. It is filled with lots of love and memories. ENjoy..Susan[img]
