    I can't believe you hand pieced this. What a lot of work. Great job.

    You must have the patience of Jobe!! I cannot imagine sticking with something so infinitely time consuming. It is beautiful and my hat's off to you.....what a super accomplishment.
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.

    I admire your tenacity to stick with this project. I am afraid I would have thrown in the towel. The quilt is beautiful and will be an heirloom for you and your family.
