    Antique quilt finished

    I finally finished handquilting this quilt for a friend that is about 75 years old and was made by her grandma. It was ALL hand sewn and the materials dont all match..some are beigh some white and its stained, but its really a nice quilt. Shes going to give it to her new grandson. I sure hope she likes it!

    How amazing! You did GOOD! This was already a wonderful family heirloom, but you made it much better and much sturdier. It is a thing of beauty.
