Beautiful hand quilting, ay?
I titled this piece "Many Hands" because so many people were involved in the making of this quilt. Each of my step-daughters, my husband, my 15 year old half sister (now 22) and I all selected one of the blocks and decided which fabrics would go where. I pieced all of the blocks by machine. It went into a box until I moved to PA. Then it came out and many other hands got involved. Katie Mader, from Needles Quilt Shop in Wellsboro, PA taught me how to bind a quilt. Pat Loux helped me decide how to piece the backing. Lastly, Mary Jane Ehlich hand quilted it for me as a gift. If it takes a town to raise a child....it takes a few states and many hands to make a quilt :)
