    Oh my, this is lovely! You really need to document (write down) the story of this quilt. The history is just fantastic. Create a Word doc. and once finished choose a nice font/size/paper and print it. Place it with a photo of the quilt in a place where all of your important paperwork is located.

    What a lovely history! This story should be shared with the entire quilting world. Wouldn't you love to see it featured in a magazine??

    I have several pillowcases from my past and many crocheted handkerchiefs. I wonder if I could combine the two and make a quilt like you did? I am sure it won't compare as you did a fantastic job but I would like to try to preserve these items. Looks great.

    This quilt just makes me feel happy. I love it. It is one of my favorites that I've seen thus far on this board. I really appreciate that you used the hand quilted pillow cases. The quilt has such an antique, vintage vibe. It will no doubt live on through your family as a treasured heirloom. Wonderful job.

    What a beautiful quilt. This was a priceless heirloom the moment you started it. Your grandaughter is going to be one lucky lady someday.

    I, too, have some pillowcases to turn into a quilt. Just need to figure out how to get the yellow out.

    what an heirloom! the embroidery and the material looks as good as it was made yesterday, It is incredible the amount of work and time spent on these beautiful pieces.
