    Here are some of the queen/king sized quilts that I have hand quilted in the last 5 years. The yellow one is for my eldest granddaughter's wedding quilt.

    My neighbor did a quilt last winter, like yours...........the 2nd one, how did you quilt it? We are thinking of finding an Amish, to hand quilt it.........so many seams. She doesn't think she wants an overall longarm quilting pattern. calla/Sue

    You did absolutely beautiful quilting work! I love them both, although I love animals, so I am slightly more drawn to the one with the birds. It would be interesting to see what the third one looks like quilted. Hope you will show pictures of that as well. Wonderful! I love hand quilting!

    Hi, Beautiful quilts. I would never get a quilt done if I had to do it by hand. My grandmother did all her quilts by hand and she made beautiful quilts too.
    How long did it take you to quilt the quilts? Marilu-Mi

    They are all remarkable, but my favorite is your bed quilt. I am really learning to love, love, love the scrappy quilt. They fit everywhere and great use of left over fabrics. I know, quilters never have enough left overs for a quilt, right?

    To have hand quilted those large quilts is truly an art and act of love for your granddaughter. She must have been thrilled when she received her quilt.

    Takes my breath away. The first one, the yellow quilt, is especially beautiful. But I'm partial to yellow anyway. If you want to adopt another granddaughter, I'm available.
