    You are absolutely amazing. What an artist to take a plain piece of cloth and turn it into a masterpiece. Always admire your fabulous work.

    A marvelous work of art-just stunning. A wholecloth quilt is on my bucket list-but I doubt that mine will be hand quilted. A very inspiring piece!

    When I could do hand quilting I always wanted to do something like this but didn't have the time. If that was in my house I would guard it like everything. NO ONE would touch it. Can't believe all the work and the joy you have for finishing it. thanks so much for sharing

    Wow! It's really pretty. My hands hurt thinking about handquilting. Arthur likes to interrupt.

    Absolutely stunning workmanship! What brand of fabric and thread did you use? I am having a difficult time finding even thread count fabrics for handquilting.

    For the design of the quilt I was inspired by a quilt made around 1932 in Wales.

    You talked about making that in 4 months! I cannot imagine! Did your hands hurt when you went to bed at night?

    Absolutely stunning!! I love wholecloth quilts but have never ever tempted one. Your handquilting is unbelievable.
