    not a quilt but something I embroidered in the 80's with
    antique beads. this took me 54 1/2 hrs.
    dry cleaner would not touch it so I turned it
    inside out and threw in washer. worked fine.
    has been washed many times with no problems.
    each section is hand tied down.

    I think I have a vintage pattern for the the quilt.
    I picked it up at an estate sale last year with that in mind
    or maybe a wall hanging.

    wow, that's remarkable!!!! If or when you no longer wear it be sure to have it framed nicely. This is too beautiful to be in a drawer somewhere. Gorgeous for sure!!!!
