    I finally got around to making a label for the quilt my Aunt gave me last month that my grandma made 81 years ago (1930)! :lol:

    Now lets see if it takes another 81 to sew it on! :lol: :lol:

    UPDATE..It is now sewn on! :-D

    I have faith in you. With the love you have for your grandmother and her skill, I am sure you will quickly finish what she started. Nice quilt and label. Thank you for sharing.

    There was a post a few weeks ago asking us to please put labels on our quilts for people who see them in the future.
