New quilt completed this past weekend

This one has a great story to it: I was working in the Scrap Exchange one day and a lady brought in these beautifully hand-embroidered squares with each state represented with their bird and flower. That means there were 50 amazing squares sitting there on the table, abandoned by their original maker to her daughter-in-law who, after 10 years, finally accepted the fact that she was never going to make them into a quilt and brought them to us. I took them immediately, pained by the fact that the tedious, mind-numbing hours spent creating these might go to waste potentially forever. This quilt was made in conjunction with Julia Gartrell and myself, as a befitting addition to the silent auction at TSE's last fundraiser party. It's beautiful and I love it.
