    What a treasure, and so nice that they took a picture of her with the quilt. I have always wanted to try that pattern. This may just be my motivation. Thank you so much for posting.

    Oh my, what a gorgeous quilt! Glad you included her in the picture. Give Elsie a big hug for all of us. Bet the quilting helps keep her going. She is a true artist. I've always loved that pattern but thought it would be too difficult. Maybe I just need a few more years experience - like about 40. :)

    Wow I can't even imagine living that long and being healthy enough to continue quilting, but I hope when I get close to that age I can still quilt

    This is absolutely lovely. Kudos to you for helping her get it quilted. A lady at work? At 102 (smile)? Thank you for sharing.

    What a beautiful quilt and smiling face of the lady who did it as 102. Nice find for a genealogist in the family to keep and pass down to future generations. Love the pattern.

    I know I will not be around that long, but I will be trying to quilt as long as I am able.
