Default Cross stitch quilt

I usually lurk on the photos board, but have been wanting to share this one for a while. I hope it's okay to post a quilt made a while ago.

Actually, this is the quilt that started me in quilting. I learned to sew clothes when I was 7 (on a hand-powered Singer, mind you - not that I'm that old, it was just the machine handed down from Grandma!) So I've been sewing a long time. Then I was also into cross stitch for a while, and found these super-cute patterns. I needed an excuse to stitch all these delightful patterns so I decided to make them up into a quilt, which I pieced but sent out for the actual quilting.

And now I'm hooked on quilting! (And my eyes can't cope with cross stitch any more anyway, so that's all good!)

So here's my "maiden" quilt.

I have made several quilts since this one, hopefully getting better each time.

Wow - looks like a lot of work. What kind of fabric is the embroidery on?
