    Oh no. My mother and aunt weren't the ones in the debate. It was other family members but I never knew who.

    What a work of love you & your sister have done. Thankfully both parties kept their halves of the quilt.

    Its a lovely quilt though what a shame it had to go through so much trouble to get to where it is today. Thank you for sharing the quilt and its story. I feel sorry for your aunt who had to make that difficult decision those years ago. Congratulations to both you and your sister at doing such a good job putting both halves back together again. Best wishes,
    Patchwork Crazy!!!
