All stitched by hand. (Back view for Kim!) I find the best way to find those annoying last few papers is to hanging the top up and stare at it!

This began at a workshop at Easter then about 35 people each made one of the flowers. Some had never tried EPP before and some were experts. Since then, I've added the pathways to connect it all together. It will have a lime green fleece backing but I haven't yet decided how to quilt it.
It will be raffled eventually.

My grandmother was a quilter and she did everything by hand. I think this was one of her favorite patterns. It's one of mine, but I, too, have yet to finish mine(definitely not all by hand). She also was partial to the wedding ring pattern. She was very frugal and made used a hummingbird pattern to use up small pieces of fabric. You all did a marvelous job.

I'll have to look the hummingbird pattern up - sounds a good one.

Beautiful quilt top. It is quite the undertaking to hand sew the entire quilt. I have a few friends that claim a "true" quilt is hand stitched. I do not follow that "logic" This has to be one of my favorite quilt patterns.
