    My DD made this wall hanging for me. She actually started it in 2001 and wanted to give it to me every year for Christmas, but never finished it. After I started quilting this fall and she helped me quilt and bind the twin quilt I made, she finished this one and gave it to me --- it only took her 9 years! I love it and she did a great job!

    It's really beautiful! Love the design of a single blue star and stars printed on the red and blue fabrics. Beautiful!

    What a labor of love. And so meaningful to have been started in 2001.
