    Here is the quilt my grandma made me for high school graduation. It is all hand quilted. The closeup shows her hand stitches. She is almost 90 now and still doing well, although she isn't able to hand quilt any more. This is precious to me. There are fabrics in here from costumes and clothes she made for me through the years. Thanks for looking!

    I have a quilt made by my 94yr old grandmother from the flannel nightgowns she made me every year for Xmas. It was also a graduation present and I cherish that quilt!
