    A forty year old trunk revels some treasures

    My BIL is moving to assisted living at age 86. He is going through his things. These quilts were in a trunk that he has not opened in over 40 years. He gave them to me to see if they coud be saved. These have only minor issues-need to be cleaned. Thought I would share and request your help In block id. Thanks !! Name:  image.jpg

    They are beautiful, and look like they have been barely used if at all. What a real treasure chest!

    Wow! These are the real works of art...cut with newspaper patterns and scissors and probably all hand pieced and quilted. These are treasures!

    Wow..what beautiful treasures he "found".
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place...the End Times.
