    A very very old quilt

    This quilt was made by a customers great grandmother. I think it is called Grandmother's Flower Garden. It was a toughie. Repairs, repairs but finally done. The customer is very happy with it. I am so glad. She is not going to use it she is going to display it. The quilting on it was done so that there wouldn't be so many holes in it since it is so old.. I am very happy with the way it turned out. My wife (quiltingdesignsforyou) made all of the repairs and wrote the descriptions about it.
