    A friend gave me this twin size quilt that was her grandmothers to quilt for her. (shes 62 so that tells you how old it is). It is all hand made with what looks like embrod. thread. Its kind of hard to hand quilt because of the thickness of the peddels on the flower but I like the way its coming out. She has 2 more "old" quilts that she wants me to quilt also.

    It sure is pretty! I'm sure it will be prettier after you're done quilting it.

    Only if YOU want to do this. Seems that you could easily teach your friend how to do it herself.
