    This is a quilt top that was made by my great grandmother in the 1960's. My mom has had it tucked away for the longest time and I just inherited it.

    Each square is made with old squares from old clothes, and was sewn on a treddle sewing machine! I'm just so exstatic to have this in my home. I'm going to turn it into a wall hanging I think. What do you think?

    Wow...it must feel so good to have something like that. It is a treasure. Wall hanging sounds really good to show and preserve.
