I want to thank all of you that went to the trouble of giving me advice and information on the quilt tops that my great-grandmother had hand-pieced. I will add a border to the one without any border, use cotton batting, muslin for the backing and hand quilt them. My great-grandmother was a wonderful woman who lived in Fayetteville, Mo in the days of the James Gang. She lived into her 90's, and was a tiny lady, less than five feet tall, with white hair. She died when I was a teenager, so I did get to know her a little bit. She had a big wonderful family, and everyone loved her. We had huge family reunions until her death.
