    That's gorgeous! Did she make it recently or was it one that was passed on to y'all? I love all the colors in it.

    From the colors, especially the green, I would guess sixties to seventies. Fabulous. I love older quilts from that time.

    A treasure indeed. Cherish it. Take good care of it and use it! Quilts were made to be enjoyed. Thanks for sharing.
