    How precious!!!!!!
    Family is a priority, not a convenience!
    Take time to be friendly... It's the road to happiness.
    Take time to give... It is too short a day to be selfish.

    How wonderful, and so much more that you still have it and it's in such fine condition.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    That's beautiful, such a treasure. No wonder everyone makes such beautiful quilts today, looks like we have had some very good teachers.

    - Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.
    - I've lost my mind somewhere in the heap of quilting scraps and motherboards.

    This quilt was definitely treasured and USED. I am the oldest of 3 and have 2 boys of my own. It was used by all of us but we always took good care of it. I passed it down to my son for his first baby and they didn't appreciate it so I brought it back home. I absolutely adore it!
