Default Caswell Quilt

This is the Caswell Quilt, designed by Corliss Searcey of Austrailia, and inspired by the Caswell Carpet that is housed in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. I completed it after working on it for 22 months while in the midst of selling my ranch that I had lived at for 49 years, designing a new home, building it, and moving. It is hand appliquéd wool on cotton and hand quilted. I was honored to have it receive grand champion at our county fair, best of show and third overall at our state fair. It hangs on a wall above my staircase in my house. I love it.

Goodness! That is simply awesome. After 22 months I would be lucky if square 1 was completed! Congratulations on those well deserved ribbons.
