I did Rebecca, but I don't know the name of the pattern. Anyone out there know?

What a family treasure!!!!!

No problem - I got the quilt from his first union, pictured below. All of Grandma Chloe's quilts are hand pieced and quilted. I don't even know that she owned a machine - I remember her sewing area & fabric in the attic but I don't remember a machine. Before her passing about 10 years ago, I got to spend time with her on several visits where she taught me to hook a rug from fabric, cook with lard (we don't really use that in Hawaii), about lightning bugs, see a calf born, and other wonderful memories from the Southern family...Our daughter is named for Grandma Chloe.

How lovely of you to name your daughter is Chloe after her. What an honor

I am so glad you were able to spend time with your DH's grandma. She sounds like a wonderful and interesting person. I love that you now have the quilt she made your DH, it is beautiful and a treasured keepsake for your family.
