Hand Quilting – A Traditional Whole Cloth Quilt

This wholecloth quilt took me 330 hours to complete – a white on white – and was given to a very dear friend who has always wanted one.  She surely was surprised – didn’t expect a thing!  I put it on my frame on September 1 of 2012, thinking that if I spent an hour a day hand quilting on it, I would finish it by Christmas 2012.  Well, by Thanksgiving, I could see pretty clearly that I had not given myself enough time…so my daily hand  quilting turned into 4 hour stints and I finished it on December 27th and gave it to her on New Years Eve.  It was so much fun to do and even more fun to see the expression on her face!Hand Quilting-Wholecloth Quilt
