This beautiful quilt was started by hand by a dear quilter who recently lost her battle with cancer.  I was asked to finish the quilt and preserve the hand stitches around the “partridge” in the center of the quilt.  The biggest challenge for me was loading a quilt on my frame that had just a handful of stitches holding the three layers together.  I had to pin baste the entire quilt, then load it to two leaders.  Then take the pins out as I ditched the quilt.   It was such and honor to complete this quilt.

  1. I believe this was Kathys quilt. She did such beautiful appliqué. Actually, she did all things well! I miss my friend.
