My first quilt that I hand quilted

I went once a month to  Medina  Quilt shop to get the pattern  kit for each block and sewed each block and quilted a row at a time. Now I have my  quilts   machine quilted no more hand quilting for me.

Close up Grandma's hand sewing .

Here is a close up look of the different materials Grandma used.  Notice how perfect she sewed them together by hand. Her corners are perfect.

Postage Stamp quilt by Grandma.

This quilt was hand sewed together by my grandmother  Caroline Steffanni with 20 and 30 materials and my mother Anna Hines  put the border on and knotted it many years later.
My mom gave it to my son Eric Lozier who enjoys knowing his great grandma made it.
