This is what the quilt looked like before I got started on it. I have the utmost respect for the lady who pieced this, because nearly ALL of it is hand stitched together. That had to have taken her forever. It also makes me wonder about the story behind this. Is there a reason she hand sewed it? Perhaps it was to keep her hands busy or perhaps she was in a place in her life where she was incapacitated. Still, it’s a beautiful and fun quilt. Her stitching is impeccable!
