    Very beautiful. The patience to quilt anything by hand is not something I was given!

    Beautiful!!! Even though I quilt with a machine, I also love the hand quilted items.

    My favorite is the DWR but haven't gotten up the nerve to attack one. Yours is gorgeous and so happy to hear you hand quilted it. To me hand quilting adds that next layer of love.

    Thank you all!
    This quilt and the other (posted too) also were hand quilted by my grandmother in the 1930's!!
    she quilted as long as her health allowed, her nursing home was kind enough to give her room to set up her quilting frames. She passed away in 1976. To this day I miss her bunches. JB.
