    That quilt is just so beautiful. You were so lucky to see it. Thank you for giving us a peek. I just can't imagine all the hours of hard work she put into it. How she must of treasured it.

    The ability to figure out the mathematics for the blocks, cut and sew with precision and quilt with no electricity or calculators, etc. boggles my mind. Amazing in photo, and would be even more so in person.

    Isn't that quilt marvelous? What a dictionary of quilt patterns. When books and patterns were not readily available, she had only to look at her own quilt to find a pattern for her next quilt. If she could make that variety, surely she could enlarge blocks as well for a never-ending source of inspiration.
