    Finished another of my MamMaw's tops

    I posted this a few days ago looking for how I could quilt it and decided to just outline it. I bound with white since she didn't have a border on it. I will give this one to my brother for Christmas. I really felt like my MamMaw was leading me though this one. That's my MamMaw's photo in the background of one of the attached photos.

    You did a beautiful job of quilting your Mam Maw's quilt. I rounded up my Mammy's tops from all the relatives and quilted them. I know what you mean , while I was quilting them, it seamed like she was guiding me. I thought I was crazy, I am so glad to know you had the same experience. That is a lovely quilt and I know your brother will appreciate it. Do you have any more we can see? Sincerely, Josie

    Your quilt surprised me. It is like one I remember my Granny having when we would visit her. Do you know the name of the pattern? Oh, the memories that have surfaced are precious and sweet. Thank you for posting.

    It is beautiful! The "old fashioned" look quilts are my favorite. I have several that my great aunt made for my Granny. Yours is a treasure.
