Raggedy Ann Turns 100 - Oh I love this quilt!!

For several years I had been buying (from eBay) these embroidered squares.   I thought I could quilt them and then decided I would look for a professional quilter.   After inquiring around I found a woman in Florida, in the Ft. Myers area, and worked with her on doing this quilt.   We talked several times and came up with the following:

The bottom picture is a king-sized pillow sham that was made from a couple of the squares.   I thought she did an absolutely fantastic job.   The back is the same dark red that outlines the squares.   All in all, it took several years to find them all and get the quilt made, but certainly worth it.
