    First for me to make one like this. Made in about three weeks time, lots of hours spent on it.
    I made this from cross stitched blocks oldest Granddaughter's other Grandma did. She can't sew a button on, so she selected me to make it for her oldest Daughter.

    Love how the quilting adds to the cross stitching, I would love to see a picture of the back too. Both you and her grandmother have real talent.

    Thanks so much for all the nice compliments.
    It took about 3 weeks, I did a quilt as you go. Back looks very good, quilting showed up on the back, it was a good grade of bleached muslin. I gave it back to her today, I forgot to take a pic of the back.
