    Quilt tops my grandma made 50+ years ago

    I just received three hand pieced quilt tops made by my grandma--another family member is moving and ran across them. Thought you might enjoy them even thought they aren't done yet

    What a treasure you have ... and thankfully your family member sent them your way, rather than all the other decisions that could have been made.

    That 3rd one is mezmerisng. Are those middle squares a block of crazy quilting? WOW... Love them all. I had a blessing like that once. I got two hand pieced tops and 17 blocks my great granny made the year I started making quilts. Which was decades after she had passed away.
