Size:  121.6 KBI don't know how I did this but we'll see how it goes. Hand quilted and hand pieced.

    Congratulations, you have created a family heirloom that you did it all and is just gorgeous.

    Hope you put a tag on the back that you did it all.

    Your work is amazing! I know how you did it--with great patience, perseverance and talent!! How long did this project take?

    Thanks! I know how I did it too but it was getting the picture to show that I still don't know exactly how I did it. Maybe I can get some others pictures on when I have time to think about it. It is tagged and I will try to put a picture on of the back.
    This project took about two months working mostly at night. I cut the pieces out in the day and I marked these pieces with 1/4 seam line. I don't always do that but I didn't want any bunches in it. I sew at night while watching boring TV.

    Here are some pictures of the back. This quilt is going to the girl that cuts my hair. She has a new doggie and I thought it was fun to put the house with the dog on the back.
