A Labour of Love…

I just had to share this quilt with you…Laura, from my Hand-Quilting group, made this quilt a few years back.  It is just stunning!  For one thing- it’s HUGE ~ so big that we couldn’t hang it on the rack!  It’s a double wedding ring with scalloped edges and of course it’s all hand quilted!

When I asked Laura how it took her to make, she smiled and lovingly said…”A loooonggg time!” as only a quilter could say…It was truly a labour of love!

I love the scrappy look….

Make sure you zoom in for a close up…beautiful, small, uniform stitches (I wasn’t a member back then….;o) )P1030835   Well done, Laura!  It’s just beautiful!  And yes, Laura has it on her bed!

Have a terrific Tuesday and Happy Quilting!

  1. What a beautiful quilt and I cannot imagine doing it all by hand, never mind, so well. I made a scrap quilt for my bed, but someday, I want to do a nice one and take my time on it.
