    Beautiful quilt. One of my coworkers have one from her grandmother that needs to be finish. Seems like that was the most popular quilt doing that time frame.

    What a woderful quilt! I do have a ? about how it is hung on the wall. I hope it is temporary, just for the picture you took and not a permanent instillation. It is a heavy quilt and needs much more support if it is to stay hung on the wall which would be very nice to do.
