This quilt was extremely well constructed (which made it easier to quilt). Donna spent three years working on it because it contains over one thousand yo-yo's. Each one was machine appliqued with invisible thread as were all the stems and leaves. She did a wonderful job.
I quilted the empty blocks with lots of feathers and filled around the grapes, stems, and leaves with a McTavishing type fill. I really hate to give this one back!!
