    You are so lucky, nothing I like better than finishing up old quilt tops. Of course sometimes it could get overwhelming. Have fun

    Wow! That's a lot to inherit! You're a lucky woman. My fav is the purple one, second from last. Is it hand stitched?
    Go forth and sew!

    All I gotta say is go forth girl and see what you can find and put together as a memorial to this lady . >WOW>. Lovely pieces for sure !

    You are very lucky indeed. I love the carpenter star one the best. Most of my quilting sisters will tell you it is because I generally like anything circular. They are really beautiful.
    Each project adds to my stash of knowledge. Love sharing the results with anyone who'll look.

    Love your vintage quilt tops. I buy them all the time and right now have about one dozen to fix. Went to a yard sale two weeks ago and bought two of them at $6.00 each and one was a Drunkard's Path. You have some beautiful quilt tops here, don't let them just sit in a drawer somewhere please.

    Beautiful tops. I love the double wedding ring. Just think all those little pieces hand stitched together. It is a shame she never saw it finished. Good for you for taking it to finish it. Please let us see them when you finish them.
