40 years ago after a car accident whiplash, I embroidered a pillowcase.... since I couldn't bend my neck to see my sewing machine. It took so many hours to complete, I can't imagine how much time she put into this quilt.
It is amazing!
I would contact your local historical society or quilt club to find out the best way to display your quilt and still preserve it. Or better yet, talk to your sister.... she may prefer that you actually use it - at least for a while.
If I went to that much trouble, I'm not sure how I would feel if the recipient didn't use it....
