    "tops only" are great just as they are..

    I love vintage quilt "tops only" because then I can see the handquilting on the backs.. Plus they take up a lot less space! Looks like the sweet lady just loved piecing them.. Quilting is a whole different ball of wax! Of course the quilting adds another dimension and especially hand quilting!

    You are a very lucky lady!

    mimmy you and I are in the same boat on the very new, you are very lucky to get all those beautiful tops. You can learn quilting almost from the end instead of the beginning, you'll be a pro at sandwiching before piecing lol.

    Very beautiful - you have a lot of work ahead of you but it will be well worth the time and effort when you are finished!

    Good Luck on your adventure. They are all beautiful tops. Myself, the old traditional quilts are my fav and yes, they have to be HQ'd. Anything else would just not work. Thanks for sharing for we are all envious.
