Beautiful! I've been thinking about starting a postage stamp quilt myself, but when I see how many little squares there really are, I'm not so sure!

BTW, absolutely love the hanger! I'm going to start watching at flea markets and garage sales to make one of my own.

Wow!! That's amazing! I love hand-quilting but can't even imagine all the time and work involved in piecing and quilting this wonderful heirloom. Job well done!!

You have a 2 in 1 quilting heirloom here....... your GGGgrandmother's handpiecing, and YOUR hand quilting! What a work of love...... passed down thru the generations. I'm so glad you've finished it & given it such a beautiful place of honor in your home! Clever, clever quilt rack!

Yes, a true heirloom treasure and, again, cleverness abounds with the use of the antique mirror holder to display this labor intensive work of art. A+ And I learned a new word today: "witherspoon." Although googling the new word seems to always bring up Reese Witherspoon. : )
