Joseph's Coat

This is a Joseph's coat (similar to an orange peel but with six spokes) that was hand stitched by my grandma Hazel Millard in the 1940's-1950's. I am slowly hand quilting it, because it deserves to be hand quilted.

I love your Joseph's coat. I've always wanted to make one, even had the template drawn, but got distracted. I can't imagine hand quilting it. You'll have to keep track of your time. I'd be interested in knowing how long it takes.
