    I'm not sure when she did this......I'm guessing it was the 70's by the fabric. Its handpieced with a blanket backing. I'm doing lots of repairs on the seams. I'm planning on turning it into a wall quilt once I get through fixing the seams and tieing it. She had tied it in a few places but never finished it. as far as I know this is the only one she ever got the top completed on.

    How nice to have something from your grandma! Mine crocheted and I have a couple pieces from her that I cherish.

    Do be careful about letting the sun at that dear old quilt! :lol:
