    Six years ago my grandmother passed away and a few weeks after that I asked my aunt (that is who she live with) if she ever got rid of my mamaw's quilting things I wanted them. Well I never did hear anything from her and then the phone rang yesterday and it was my aunt and she ask me if I still wanted my mamaw 's quilting stuff and I say YES. Well she brought some of it over here yesterday and wow did she have a lot. Some of the fabric was yardages and some of it was scraps and a box full of patterns! The patterns are mostly made of cereal boxes and things like that. I can't wait to go through them. I'll have to get tubs for the fabric and then find a place for it!! I am so grateful that I now have something that belong to my mamaw!!
