Ready for Hand Quilting !

Posting for Karen. We had a busy day yesterday as I helped Karen layer and baste her quilt top together and in return she helped me baste my Roseville Album quilt top. We left an open area on the border so she could finish sewing the men on the dogs. Karen also made hers close as possible to the original quilt. She has done beautiful hand workmanship with both the applique and embroidery. Now she has to decide how she wants to quilt it, probably grid work.
