    This lap/baby quilt is about 51" square, machine pieced and hand quilted recently by me. This is unique- colors and color placement are original and arranged in the Jewel Box pattern. As with all hand work, there are minor flaws peculiar to handmade quilts, which give it character.

    Pymt by cash/money order, quilt will be sent when pymt received. Shipping included in price. Thanks!

    Thanks, not really sure. I pieced it quickly, but put is aside and didn't quilt it till later on.

    Yes, I piece by machine and do the quilting by hand. Pieced everything by hand till a couple of years ago.

    That's a stunning quilt. Well worth a lot more than the price you are asking.

    Thanks, guys. Imp, I know folks are having money issues these days and disposable income isn't what it used to be so I wanted to make this affordable for someone.
