Type of item: Functional

What was your inspiration?
The picture in a book that I own. It is stored and can be found at a later time. I love this one. It is for sale on etsy at Joyful Couture.
What are you most proud of?
That I had the energy and know-how to make it and then hand quilt it. I am older now and could never do this again. I had it appraised at around $3,000.00.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Buy the cotton fabric and go for it. Have patience with yourself as it is not an easy one to make. It is stunning when done but really looks best on the wall. I had it on the bed but it fell flat. It has to be far away to get the best view of it. It is one of my favorites but has to be sold.
