    Inherited Quilt Tops

    As a lot of you on this board have followed a lot of my thread... I am very new to quilting... I inherited a ladies quilt room a few months ago and I am just getting around to sharing some of my "treasures" ... This is just SOME of the treasures........ These are unfinished quilt tops. Some are embroidered and some are patchwork! Enjoy!

    What amazing quilts. So much work I wonder why she never finished them. I am so glad they found a good home.

    I have no idea why she never finished them... she had SOOO many projects started... There are at least 50 quilts that are cut out, but none put together. I have put them all into zip lock bags, and one day I will go through them and see what there really is. I just put together what I thought "went" together!!!!

    I have joined the UFO thread on the board. Year to date I have finished four almost five bed size quilts. Makes me even happier that I am finishing some. I am sure she would be happy to know you are taking up her starts. Good luck. Please continue to show us how it goes.

    Mimmy, you are very lucky to have gotten them. I know that your a beginner but you can do it one quilt top at a time. Have fun learning.
    Prayers for all who need them, Wolf Hugs

    A fantastic array of quilt tops! Kudos to you for wanting to preserve them and not "get rid of them". Best of luck in your progress.

    I think they went to you because someone knew you'd love them. It's always wonderful when the giver thinks about what the recipient would want. So now you have a treasure.

    Wow you sure did get a lot. I am sure she is looking down on you (hopefully) and thrilled that you are getting them out in the open and hopefully on their way to being completed quilts.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    These are awesome. It looks like that fabulous umbrella quilt was made using some of those iron on transfers. Love it.

    The 2nd to last one, blue split star is fabulous and the lovely ladies, wow!
    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?
