very nice quilt indeed! my grandmother and associated relatives had quilting parties when i was very young...i got to play under the quilt while they were sewing :) my mom just turned 80 this month and still quilts, all by herself! she sews the patches together on the machine but all the rest is done by hand. she says it's good therapy and helps with the arthritus iin her fingers/hands. she's famous for her baby quilts, having given away over 200 of them. I gave her $50 for a baby quilt so she can get her hair fixed. to my knowledge, she has never sold a quilt other than to me. She has a waist high stack of quilts in the bedroom--told me i could have any that i wanted but being on my bike, i could not even carry one home :( she also has a closet full of quilt tops ready to quilt up...i told her i want a top and her good sewing machine when she leaves us. :)
