    I finished my mom's quilt - 60 years later

    Awhile back I posted pics of my mom's quilt that I was going to make wider and bind it. For some reason she never got to it and my brother and SIL found it in the attic of the farmhouse that she ad my dad had lived in for more years than I can remember. Anyway, here it is, hope you approve.

    A very beautiful quilt! I love the tiny floral patterns and having trying to find and collect some for a future quilt. I think you did a super job of enlarging. I would not have known where to start, but maybe someday....

    How perfect! A quilt you worked on together. Great fabric choices too. You must be very happy about it.
