    After a roundabout back and forth between my DH and his ex, we finally got this quilt back. His grandmother made it for him for his 21st b'day. (He is now 60...so you can figure about how old it is.) She pieced and quilted the whole thing by hand.


    Sorry...camera died before I got a pic of the back. We hung it at the church to take pix, and left it there for people to see.

    Thank you all. I am kind of afraid to use it....I would like to find a wall to hang it that would do it justice.

    That pattern is, I think, Grandmother's Garden. How precious.
