    The Jewels in My Flower Garden she gave to me quite a few Christmases ago - I am hand quilting each square - it's the look I want. The hearts are one of four that she gave the last Christmas she was with us. I don't like hearts really, but after quilting it on my aunts machine I like it a lot better. Just have to finish stitching the edge... the cats enjoyed the photography session

    Beautiful quilts with such memories, I'm sure.
    Cats are such curious little buggers, aren't they. :D

    What a treasure you have. I had the honor of quilting 3 that my grandmother had pieced. Even though they are not my colors I love them. To me they are priceless.
