    I made this top over a year ago and wanted to hand quilt it. Kept putting it off until one day I thought of a couple good friends (in their +80s) who love to quilt. I made a deal, if they wanted to quilt it I would give them the quilt. They did just that in 10 days! They plan to sell tickets on it and donate the proceeds. The finished quilt measures 60"x80"

    Yep, this is a quilt I'd buy raffle tickets for the chance to own it. You did a great job.
