    Grandma's window quilt blocks

    I had this window frame from my grandmother's house they torn down years ago but never knew what to do with it. Last time I was home Mama gave me a lot of Grandma's quilt blocks..They are so old and holes in them so can't really be used as a quilt..then I got this idea and made this and hung it in my sewing room..What you think?

    What a wonderful keepsake! Great idea and I am sure your Grandma would be so happy that you cared enough to use her old window and her quilt blocks in this way.

    Memories are not always in our minds - or one dimensional. This beautiful memory is on the wall, two dimensional, and lovely. I hope it makes you smile whenever you look at it!

    Very pretty, great idea. You could also frame some as single pictures.
