    Antique quilt finished

    I just finished hand quilting this 100 plus year old quilt for a friend. It was hand pieced by her great grandmother.

    Wow, what a lovely design for a "new" family heirloom. You did a wonderful job; I am sure great grandmother is smiling from above at your talent and kindness.

    What a beautiful quilt. How wonderful that you were able to bring this quilt top to it's full glory with your handquilting. What an amazing heirloom.
