What are you most proud of? This quilt was entirely hand stitched, at 10 - 12 stitches per inch. The applique is hand-applied, and it took four years to complete. This quilt has won numerous awards, and graces the front of the June/July issue of Quilters Newsletter.

What you will need

  • Cottons
  • most of which were given to me by friends in a birthday fat quarter swap.

Q&A with JAtkins

Debbie C. asked:
I do hope you find it. What a treasure.
JAtkins answered:
Thanks, Debbie. I'm sure it's out there somewhere.
Lost Quilt asked:
This missing quilt is also featured, along with many more, on the Lost Quilt Come Home website, http://lostquilt.com/index.php/2011/status/missing/kaaterskill/
JAtkins answered:
Thanks! You guys have been wonderful!
Meg42 asked:
Very sad to see it missing. Our family has made many quilts over the years, all intricately handstitched by generations of quilters. I cannot imagine the heartbreak. I hope it comes home soon.
JAtkins answered:
Thank you!
Laurie Cyb asked:
That has always been my nightmare about sending my quilts anywhere. I'm so sorry to hear about your loss, I know how much love, sweat and tears (and in alot of instances blood) into each creation. I will keep my eyes open on the East Coast and pray that your beautiful creation comes home :(
JAtkins answered:
I've learned a lot from this - and it's not all bad. I'm awed at how much other people care! thank you.
LaurieGayle asked:
I am so sorry to read this. I hope it gets found and returned to you. I'll do what I can to get the word out!
JAtkins answered:
Thank you so much!
