Candy,
Since my wife quilts as a business, I am glad to see that some folks out there understand how much money and time is involved. A high quality quilt takes time to make and materials are not cheap. A lot of people think about those that are made in China and think all quilts should be priced accordingly ! Not !!

My wife has been quilting for several years. She has made 50+ quilts. We have pictures of 40. Did not keep a record of some of the early ones or repeat designs. She has hand quilted almost all of them. She made this one for me in 1994.
