    This quilt is a wallhanging sized one done by Diane McKiddie. (She is a member of the Truckee Meadows quilt guild) I won it by putting in all of five dollars worth of tickets in a random pull container at a quilt show.

    I won three things that year. This wallhanging, a half hoop for hand quilting and a basket full of quilting supplies and fat quarters.

    I thought you girls might enjoy seeing the type of work she put into a donation quilt.

    Beautiful machine quilting and hand applique..
