    You are now the caretaker of some wonderful pieces of history.

    Are you going to quilt them, display them. What are your plans for them?

    peace
    Well..... right now I have placed them all in a nice clean tote until I can get to each of them! I do plan on them all being quilted one day!!

    What a treasure. So glad to see someone share a loved collection. I was indeed lucky enough to inherited my much loved Aunts quilting collection and it often brings me happy tears. I use her fabrics for donation quilts which seems right that others share the warmth. Enjoy.

    Love the 4th, 6th and 7th one. I bought a top over the weekend that is the same pattern but the stars are all different fabric and the background is a dark lilac. What do you plan on doing with them?

    What a beautiful variety of quilts, and my fav is the second from the last. It appears to be purple and cream or white, with the star in the middle and expanding border around that. I was wondering if anyone knows the pattern name of that block? Thanks to anyone who can answer. Good luck on finishing all those quilts. Just one at a time, and they will be done.

    a place where happiness lives
    and memories are sewn.

    My mom's favorite quilt design was the double wedding ring. My personal favorite is the star with the embroidered umbrellas.

    They are all so beautiful. The Double Wedding ring is my favorite.
    Looks like she liked to piece more than quilt.
