As with a lot of quilts, there is a story attached to this one. Our neighbour's Mum & I struck up a friendship through our love of patchwork & quilting. Sadly she passed away a couple of years ago & her husband asked if I could finished this quilt. She had basted it & started hand quilting. Like most of us, I am working on half a dozen projects at the one time, so it took me over a year to finish, but it is finished & ready to be returned - I do enjoy hand quilting & try to have some on the go for when the need to hand quilt touches me.
