found this one digging around in the parents attic in with some of my moms old childhood things. is in need of some repairs in the center but still a nice old quilt
thanks for looking

I would like to subscribe to a quilting magazine and have noticed there are several out there. Which one do you think are the best? I have been quilting for a long time, but do very simple, basic patterns. I love to look at really good pictures to get me inspired. What do you recommend?
