    Great tops. Hope you do get into it and finish these and others you say you have. I like the embroidered purple one best.
    Live and let live!

    You have acquired some wonderful treasures. Don't you wish you had the information about all of them, and why they weren't finished. I have four that my Grandmother didn't finish, and 3 are salvageable. I am going to finish them up for myself and one for each of my siblings. I hope they like them as much as I do. My Mom was able to find pieces from some of her school clothes in one of the tops. Mom passed away at 83, so you can only guess at how old they are

    I think the quilts tops you sent a picture of are beautiful. I think you are a treasure in keeping them we all have UFO's. Have a wonderful time going through her stuff and finding all the treasures.

    "tops only" are great just as they are..

    I love vintage quilt "tops only" because then I can see the handquilting on the backs.. Plus they take up a lot less space! Looks like the sweet lady just loved piecing them.. Quilting is a whole different ball of wax! Of course the quilting adds another dimension and especially hand quilting!

    You are a very lucky lady!

    mimmy you and I are in the same boat on the very new, you are very lucky to get all those beautiful tops. You can learn quilting almost from the end instead of the beginning, you'll be a pro at sandwiching before piecing lol.

    Good Luck on your adventure. They are all beautiful tops. Myself, the old traditional quilts are my fav and yes, they have to be HQ'd. Anything else would just not work. Thanks for sharing for we are all envious.

    WOW! Do you truly have a treasure chest! Beautiful tops. Maybe she was like a lot of us: "Some day I'll get-around-to-it". You know 'someday' is not a day of the week! Seems like we all have way too many UFO. I know I do. When I pass, my DS & DD won't know what to do with it all!.....
