My Four Season's Quilt is Here!!!





My little quilt made a little trip before it finally arrived, safe and sound, in it's new home. I'm so grateful that it found it's way here! I won't go into details, but just want everyone involved to know that it has arrived safely and I LOVE IT!




My quilt was made by Grace and she did an outstanding job on the quilt. I really love red, white and blue quilts! They really sing "SUMMER" to me. I think it's amazing that my partner took the time to hand piece and hand quilt this little beauty! I wish you could feel just how soft and supple this little quilt is.

When I started quilting in 1990, Dear Sister in Law taught me to hand piece and hand quilt. Up until 2 years ago, everything I made was done completely by hand. So, believe me when I say, I know the work and time involved in hand piecing and hand quilting!

Thank you so much Grace for the wonderful quilt! I haven't decided where this quilt will reside permanently, and I haven't had time to audition new places yet. I will though, once I'm through admiring it!!!

Happy Quilting and Happy Swapping to all the swappers!!!!
