    I've been going through my closets, and I just realized that I came by my quilting gene honestly.

    My mother who passed away in June at age 98 made this quilt. Although it is machine pieced and quilted, it looks like she spent a lot of time on it

    My grandmother on my mother's side made this one. It was one of her fancy quilts, hand-pieced and hand-quilted

    There are 42 blocks, and each petal is gathered around the center

    My grandmother on my father's side made this one. It was an everyday quilt, there are stains on it, but I still love it

    these are lovely. have you had them appraised to know the value. insurance companies are believing in the value of quilts more now.
    The second quilt looks like fabric that my grandma made a quilt out of also. thank you for sharing them:)
