When I saw this quilt,http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=267680.msg3012541#msg3012541I knew I had to make one.  It's been a couple of years but I finally got a round to it. It's all hand appliqued and hand quilted.  I really like how it turned out.


Here's a shot of the back.

A close-up of the quilting

And a close-up of the pieced binding

Hope you like it!
