This quilt I started over 10 years ago. I used my DSM to quilt some of the center of the quilt. It sat for over 8 years before I finished it on my girlfriens longarm. It took me only one afternoon to finish it. I sewed the binding on with my machine not by hand. It would still be another 10 years before I would get it done by hand. Hope you enjoy the quilt. I do!
