    Remember I told you all that my Aunt was sending me a quilt that my Grandma made? Well, I got it yesterday! I am so thrilled to have it, especially because I just recently found out she quilted!

    I consider it an early birthday gift from her as my birthday is next week :lol:

    It is hand quilted. And I am awaiting more info when it was made so I can make a label for it.

    What a neat treasure. Glad you have it on the bed and not in a drawer where you can't love, use, and see it.

    Thanks everyone. It will have to be put up for awhile because my cats are still young (1-1/2) and they need to calm down a bit before I leave it on my bed! I'd freak if they got their claws in it and tore it.
