Prim Heaven

My sister and I drove down to the beach to visit my only Aunt, and my cousins....she is a quilter and always has been, and she loves prim just like me.....many years ago she lost most of her vision, and for the last few years has been going thru a lot of different things to try to restore it, the latest being a cornea for many years she has not been able to sew at all.......I talked her into dragging down some of her unfinished quilts, so I could see them....hopefully someday soon she will be able to finish them, she hand quilts everything and one of these was even totally sewn bu hand, no machine whatsoever!!!!
I love her colors and she is the applique queen...and she is my hero and has always been my inspiration..I love you Aunt Honey!!!!

This is the one she totally sewed by HAND, all those little squares, by HAND.......
