    I found sort of twin size, Double wedding ring at a garage sale one time, it was pretty ratty & not big enough to really 'do' anything with,but it called to me.. So I had it mounted matted and framed. I love looking at every time I pass it. You could do the work yourself if you chose to not spend the money.

    I save quilts too. If it was mine, I'd back it just like it is and either display it or use it as a table topper. It's beautiful! I think it would look lovely at Christmas time. Someone put a lot of work into it; I'm glad it has a new "home".

    I'm with everyone else. Back it. It needs to be finished and by the way I think it's pretty. It has personality.

    I do, also! It is usually a real joy to spend the day looking, reading, learning, sharing ... one of the best forums I have ever been involved with, to say the least!

    I think this is just beautiful and I loved Vjengels idea, she took the words right out of my mouth. I would, if it is small, frame it. Put it in an archival matting and preserve it...is it old? I didn't see that anywhere in the remarks. Ephrata WA..do you ever get to Spokane???? We have some GREAT quilt shops here. Could meet for coffee?????? Joanie

    I would do a wall hanging with it. I think it would look super unique in the right area
