    2 sisters 2 quilts

    I made these quilts using lots of my grandmothers linens and hankies. I gave them to my sisters on Saturday and they loved them! They both have completely different personalities. One loves antiques and the other is more contemporary.

    both quilts are so pretty in their own way
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I agree. You made them each a quilt with the type of quilts they like. VERY good job.
