Nine Patch Quilt with flowers

This quilt is totally sewn by hand and hand quilted. Fabric flowers are scatterd over quilts. I wanted to get a feel of how our ancestry's sewed quilts. This is the second quilt I sewed by hand and have to say I really enjoy sewing this way. It is time consuming and slow. Since this is becoming a lost art I get pleasure making quilts this way. Quilt is 42" x 42". Yes, I still make quilts on my sewing machine. This quilt has been sold.
