    Grandma's window quilt blocks

    I had this window frame from my grandmother's house they torn down years ago but never knew what to do with it. Last time I was home Mama gave me a lot of Grandma's quilt blocks..They are so old and holes in them so can't really be used as a quilt..then I got this idea and made this and hung it in my sewing room..What you think?

    What a wonderful keepsake! Great idea and I am sure your Grandma would be so happy that you cared enough to use her old window and her quilt blocks in this way.

    Memories are not always in our minds - or one dimensional. This beautiful memory is on the wall, two dimensional, and lovely. I hope it makes you smile whenever you look at it!

    Very pretty, great idea. You could also frame some as single pictures.

    Great idea and lovely memories as well. Thanks for sharing this tip.
    Desiderata (Max Ehrmann) - Walk placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
