    This is a wallhanging I made in 2003. The size is 55" x 33", it is hand quilted and I used some very traditional welsh quilting patterns like the bent leaf, the fan and spirals. I used a light green thread on the olive-green fabric, so the quilting stands out very clearly. The quilt took me about 10 weeks to finish.

    Beautiful! I would love to see some close ups of the quilting where we can see the actual stitches.

    The color looks totally strange, the quilt is olive-green - but you can see the quilting stitches.
