    A dear friend of mine who is a quilting inspiration to me recently finished her Dear Jane quilt top. It is so gorgeous I just had to share it with you all. It took her 6 years from beginning to end. She is sending it to a woman to hand quilt for her.

    Isn't this a work of love??

    That's really special! Wonder how the lady will hand quilt it? Be sure to show us when she's finished.
