Hmong Quilt

I purchased this wall hanging at the Folk Fair in Milwaukee, WI, in the 1980s.  Though time has passed,  I'm STILL amazed at the intricacies of this work.  Below is a close up of the concentric spirals, done in reverse applique.  You can see every tiny, even stitch.  I wonder how many hours someone toiled on this project.
