    What a great treasure! And the fact that they belonged to a dear Aunt is even better! Beautiful quilts!

    Oh, my you did great. In the first picture of single blocks, I
    like the one in the upper left hand corner best. Do you know
    the name of that pattern?

    What beautiful work she has done. You're so lucky to be able to keep them in the family. Can't wait to see the quilts that you make with her special blocks!

    What beautiful quilts to have. Your title is that you didn't know your Aunt, but maybe through her quilts you do afterall. She certainly knows you have them and will cherish them. Thank you for sharing.
