I received this from my Mom yesterday. There are no words to describe how I felt when I opened the Box. Mom also sent the story behind it: Her Granny had pieced tog the squares but she doesn't know when. Granny passed away before Mom's 10th birthday in 1949. The top was tucked away in my Grandma's ceader chest for a few years then she had the lady across the street put on the backing and quilt/tie it. Mom was in her teens at that time.
