Last winter I pieced them together so that I could begin quilting them. I got maybe a quarter of it quilted before I put it away for a while. Lately I have been in the mood to quilt, so I got it out again.
It may sound crazy to some to try to hand quilt a project as big as this, but I feel like it would be an insult to my Great grandmother to have it machine quilted. Besides, quilting is very relaxing for me. A few winters ago I hand quilted a top made by Great grandma on the other side of my family. It is one of my most prized possession. Hopefully I will be able to finish this one before too long, then I can display them side by side.
