    My mom (now 100) made this same quilt for my daughter. Daughter is now 29 and it's still hanging in her home.

    A joint venture by both grandmas. That makes that quilt extra special and so beautiful!

    How special that it was made by two grandmas. It is beautiful. I can't believe that the other grandma can do such beautiful cross stitch but can't sew on a button... maybe she just doesn't want to? LOL

    This is beautiful. Your choices of fabric complimented the samplers nicely. :-)

    I can't imagine the time spent for all the cross stitching.
    I use to do it but cant see that well anymore.
    This quilt is beautiful.

    Thanks everyone for all the nice words.
    I feel so pleased that so many people like it.
    Yes, I'm sure the cross stitch fabric was thin and have some poly in them. If it isn't washed real often it should wear very well.

    I have that same block that I did years ago. I didn't put any sashing in it and used a backing that had all the colors of the block in it. Hanging on my quilt rack right now, never been used. Tried to sell it one time, but no takers. Not giving it away either, too much work in it.
