I fixed a sewing machine for a friend of a friend. The machine was his Grandmother's Singer 401. He inherited her house, along with most of the contents. He wanted to pay me but I don't take money to work on machines. He went in another room and came out with a Grandma's Flower Garden quilt top his Grandmother had hand pieced, he insisted I take it. I have never done anything with it because I didn't want to machine quilt a hand pieced top.
I want to learn to hand quilt and I have decided it will be my first victim. Here is my dilemma, I don't feel right keeping the quilt once it is finished. I want to give it back to him or his parents. It was his father's mom who made the top. I asked when he gave it to me if someone in his family would want it to finish. He told me "No, Gram never finished them and no one knows how to, so I'm giving them away". What would you do and how would you approach the family once it is completed?
