    I absolutely love this..what an amazing way to use those pillow cases - and such a lovely tribute to those ladies ! i remember sitting in the evening watching my Mom embroider our pillow cases - every one we had was embroidered - and it's only now looking back that i realize just how special that was. i have several tucked away in my cedar chest...which i am now tempted to use thanks to your clever idea. Well done !!!!!
    Of all the things i've lost, i miss my mind the most.

    What a wonderful labor of love. You did a superb job. When I was a little girl, my grandmother cross stitched my name on a sheet set for me. These many years later, the sheets were falling apart and I cut out the part with my name and made a pillow. I use it every day in my favorite chair. You made a lovely heirloom, congratulations!

    How wonderful. If your GD doesn't want may be it could be placed in a quilt museum just for the story, and the amount of years the quilt covers. Not to mention the workmanship.

    Your quilt will be cherished for generations to come. Hand quilting is a dieing art and yours deserves to be applauded as well as admired. You deserve a pat on the back for the tons of hours that has gone into all of those beautiful stitches.

    I am sure others have oohed and aahed too over this but what a neat way to preserve family memories. I can see why it took so long but it will be a family heirloom. Wow! You did great.

    Wow! What a family treasure! I hope you made a label with all of the names so generations down the road will know the labor of love they own. I wish I could see the quilt in person, I'm sure these pictures don't do it justice! Thanks for sharing!
