This entire quilt was hand done!!!! It took her eight years. But what a reward!

Ok, I have just one more, just so I can leave a really big smile on your faces!quilts 023

Sorry about some of these pictures, they are not as sharp as they should be, I also had a smudge on my camera lens and so right in the center of some pictures, it is fuzzy! Some days, I should just stay home….but this was not one of them! It was an incredible experience and I learned a lot.


  1. Wow!! You got more sharp pictures than I did. But then ... you are the best photographer around. It was a wonderful day together again.

  2. Oh my goodness.... what an amazing assortment of gorgeous works of art!!! I couldn't pick a favorite... each one is beautiful!

  3. Oh my goodness, what wonderful pictures. I am sure you had an awesome time.

  4. gorgeous!! The fruit one is just awesome. I can't imagine all the time and stitches that went into that. So many beautiful creations. Thanks for sharing and including us so we could share in the fun too!!

  5. Those are beautiful. Eight years is a long time to work on a quilt, but indeed it is fabulous....and the last indeed made me smile. Thanks for sharing.
