    It is a small world after all. With the internet it is so much easier to "find" information. It is wonderful that you were able to reunite him with something from his past.
    This too shall pass.

    Life is just full of joyous little twists and turns. Now you have a reason to keep those templates and yes, share with the grandson. A wonderful life story that could weave itself into a marvelous quilt book. Any writers out there listening? I have the heart but alas, not the skill.

    That is so cool!
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    Very interesting story, do you have any photos of the templates now? Or selling anymore metal templates made by him?

    Thanks for sharing this great story. It's wonderful how handmade things can hark back to a bit of personal history, and very sweet that you were able to return some templates.
