This fabulous quilt was entirely hand sewn by my Aunt as a wedding gift for my daughter. It took 2 years to make and I think it is stunning. The photos just don't do it justice. Every panel has been hand embroidered and each represents a different month of the year. The colours are much more beautiful than in the photos.
This is the Aunt for whom I have made the 2 albums. They are just a trifle compared to this wonderful piece of folk art.

Thank you Elise. This fabulous quilt is actually my Aunts work. She is over 80 and it took her 2 years to hand sew the whole thing.
