    OMG what a wonderful inheritance from anyone to a quilter. Now that's the kind of treasure we would all like to inherit. Congrats and certainly enjoy finishing these lovely quilts and the others you have to put together. I think I am a weebit jealous ... well not the right words. I am mostly so excited for you. Enjoy enjoy enjoy!

    I'm having trouble picking a favorite, but I think the dresden star wins on that one. They are all wonderful

    I think it is wonderful you have inherited these quilts and her sewing - - I would be in heaven if someone did that for me! If you are planning to launder them be very careful and not use detergent. Maybe you know this already so sorry if I am "butting" in; someone in my family ruined a beautiful double wedding ring quilt made by my great grandmother's sister. She had used the thirties and forties fabrics which have a different make up of chemicals than todays fabrics and the fabric ripped and tore in spots in almost all of the fabrics. Just want to save you some grief!
    I would get some advice on laundering them before you think about washing. This board came help you with any thing quilt related. They are wonderful people.

    Thank you for the input.... I didn't think I should even try to laundry them until they are quilted.... Is that would I should do? I am new to all this.. I def do not want to tear them up!

    Do you have any plans for trying to finish the ones that aren't quite finished? If there are that many unfinished quilts there must be a mountain of fabrics. You are going to have FUN.

    Just start on one and finish it all the way. Time has a way of speeding along.

    All of the are beautiful and will be even more so when quilted and finished.

    I am so flabbergasted by your inherited treasures!! Boy I should be so lucky, although I am sad by the loss of a fellow quilter. I can't even imagine what I would do but am so happy to hear you are attempting to hand quilt them...that is a labor of love! You have been truly blessed.

    Treasure these and try to get them finished. They are all wonderful. You really are very very fortunate to have these.

    The quilts are beautifully made. So glad they went to a wonderful home where they can be completed and treasured. I too am a newbie so I can relate to the un daunting task of learning how to quilt let alone completing quilts you had never started. Take it one quilt at a time, advancing a skill in each quilt. This board has been wonderful to ask questions and seek guidance on the art of quilting. Enjoy!
