    The first pix is just one I wanted to share. It's the last quilt that momma finished. The next one is a Lady in Waiting -- a Trip Around the World that was pieced by my grandma
    the third is one that I pieced and if I ever get it quilted I'm keeping it for myself.

    The last quilt mom ever finished. Some of the whites in the pieced blocks is old Bull Durham bags.

    This one will be mine when it's quilted. I also made matching pillow cases

    What a thrill it must be to have three generations of quilts in your house. I like your dorothy quilt. Very cute.

    Yes it is although it the TATW was made by my dad's mom. My mother's mom died when mom was 14 months old. I don't know if her step mom quilted or not--never heard of it if she did.
    I've always loved Wizard of Oz so when this fabric came out I had to make the quilt.

    Beautiful. I have a Wedding Ring from my hubby's Grandmother that is just the top and needs some fixing. I'm so afraid to do anything with it and I know it's gonna be expensive to get it fixed.
