I have a friend that loves to shop at Estate Sales. She found this quilt still on a quilting frame...the piecing was done...all by hand....but the hand quilting was only partially done.It looked like she was using up her stash with all the applique. I found a local quilt group who does hand quilting. They finished the quilting then I sewed by hand the binding. Unbelievable that the family did not want this. I donated the quilt frame to the group. It's now a lovely edition to my guest bedroom.
