    Another condolence cut work quilt

    I made this quilt for a man at church, it is of his Mom, whom we have known for about 30 years. It told him I do this instead of sympathy cards. He really liked it.

    You do really nice work. You captured her personality in the eyes. I'm so glad to see more "art" quilts on the board.

    A few questions. Do you use batting in any of these art works. Since this picture doesn't have binding how do you do the seams. All of your work is beautiful.
