Quilt Facts

This is from a card I got at a quilt show at the Meyersdale Maple Festival. There was no source on the card.

"At 10 hand stitches to the inch of thread, there are 360 stitches to the yard. The average quilt has 250 to 300 yards of thread quilted, so there are 90,000 to 108,000 hand stitches per quilt."

Makes you feel more like you're accomplishing something when you look at it that way....

Oh, and here's the first tomato from the garden. It's perfect and smooth and red and ripe and smells fantastic!! I can't wait to eat it.

I'm taking a break for a week, so happy quilting!
