    I wonder if you read the introduction to this Family Treasure ..... back in the Year 1840, I don't believe "Paper Piecing" was even a word in the Quilting Vocabulary.

    This quilt was "hand-sewn" - "hand-pieced" .... "sewing by hand" .... in "1840" by my "Great - Great - Great Grandmother". I "myself" with help from friends, "Hand Quilted" the entire quilt. The "Hand Quilting" took us almost 6 months to complete.
