    My Grand Mother's gift to me.

    This quilt was made in 1951, it was made by my Grand Mother who was 67 at the time, she was considered a very good quilter. I got it out to show my quilt group so I took a photo. I just thought I would share it with this group too. I truely cherish it; in fact I don't use it, getting it out was such a treat. The second photo is to show the edging she did. Name:  P2241061.JPG
