Closet Treasures

Some folks have skeletons in their closet............I have unfinished quilts.

I love to hand piece and hand quilt. So, using scraps from a quilt that I made for my grand daughter, I traced, cut and hand sewed this about six years ago. The hoop shows my progress on the hand quilting, not even half done.

When anyone asks who this is for, I tell them ME. I want to display this on my quilt rack, someday. In the mean time my children have instructions that they are supposed to cover me with it in my coffin...........finished or NOT.

I must say, digging it out of the closet and looking at it, I love it even more. It makes me want to get busy and do another session on the hand quilting
