    My dad finally sent my son and I's christmas package. Along with our gifts he sent a few pieces my grandmother had hand quilted. They are keeping her stash of fabrics and other pieces she has quilted for me untill I can give them the money to ship them to me. I can wait to lay them on the floor and piece them together there are a total of 14 pieces. They make even make a full size quilt if im lucky.

    Too bad you didn't also inherit the shipping costs. How about asking them to stick a block in every time they mail you a letter? It shouldn't add to the postage!

    What a lovely thing to have...even better that you will put it together and it will be a proper quilt...Just like your Gran would have planned.

    I know you will cherish those done by your Grandmother.
    Tell your Dad to consider using UPS to ship you things. I just sent a quilt I did for my brother through the Postal Service, and it was not a large quilt, nor did I even insure it, and postage was outlandish.

    I wish I had some of the quilts made by my grandmother and mother that we used, but somehow they disappeared through the years. I'm the only one in the family interested in quilts and I would treasure them. At least I have a couple of pictures of them.
