18 Months & 60,000 Stitches Later....

My Ruthie"Quilt is finished!!! It's a queen-sized, machine-pieced, hand-quilted beauty. It took 18 months to make and includes over 60,000 hand-stitches.

I'm beyond happy that it's done!

I used three different designs to quilt the blocks. Can you tell?

This is the back.

It'll be Kait's someday -- when she's much, much older. She has a few stitches of her own in this quilt and really shows and interest in all things quilting!

as a lover of all quilts especially those handmade ... great job there it is beautiful!
I cant make them in any way shape or form, but my aunt makes the tops... peiced or cross stitched all by hand and I have a friend in south carolina who does the quilting all by hand as well.

it is very cool that your daughter is interested too :)
