    I found is in a garage sale at a church, only the flowers. I'd never seen anything like it before, this was in 2002. so I look for a book that had it in and worked on it for over a year.. mind you I was very new to quilting at that time, but I figured it out.. same problem as alot of my quilts, needs to be quilted..It is all hand done,, I cut the rest of the hexagons and stitched them when we traveled.. I was very Happy when I finished.. thanks for Looking

    What a find! Your Sun bonnet Sues look great.
    Is that redwork on the quilt your friend sent you?

    WOW what a find. I am in Alaska and did not send that red, gray, black etc. one to you. Who was it? Was it Muriel? Just curious--I used to live in Fairbanks but now I live in Anchor Point, AK. And your applique one is cute too. You can do private message if you need to.
