    I started this quilt in a class at Daisy Barrell in Fairborn, Ohio around 2000 (estimate), I would work on it then put it away. I finally finished it this winter. It is hand appliqued onto cotton with cotton sashing and boarders. I made a scrapy pieced backing out of lots of leftover flannels. I even added a few "Let It Snow" embroidery from my craft show days. I then used pearl cotton to big stitch quilt it, in not particular pattern. Hope you all enjoy looking at my pics. It has been a labor of love and very, very cozy and warm on the cold Ohio nights. Celia

    Good things are worth waiting for and spending quality time with. This is beautiful. Different parts will bring back a decade of memories. Can't think of anything better than that. I just love it!

    Even the back is great. It is so pretty and it looks like it would be great to cuddle up in on a cold night.

    WOW - I was floored when I saw this. A few years ago I finished a quilt for a friend at work. His mother had started a few quilts and she passed away. He found in the attic a bunch of her sewing things that he believed to have been from the 70's. So I put all the blocks together and tied it. One block with the house was missing a tree, one was missing a stepping stone and they all needed to be appliqued. So I went to work and finished it for him. Obviously by looking at yours, there was more to this quilt that she never got to. Take a look.....
