A Quilt Gift

This is our new daughter-in-law with the lap quilt I made for her for Christmas. It's constructed of Civil War prints and hand-tied with DMC floss. I've learned an easy rule for tying a quilt. Place the ties as far apart as the length of your hand. They live in the Chicago area, so I hope it helps keep her warm!

  2. OK, I had a little chuckle. Reading this post and mentioning floss, all I could think of was dental floss. And why on earth would anyone tie a quilt with dental floss? After thinking about it for about 20 seconds, it occurred to me that you meant embroidery floss.
