Her new husband didn't know any of the history of the quilt ? It is a work of art - can't wait to see how you finish it :mrgreen:

Sharon.. he didn't know if his deceased wife did it or his sister... that's a man for ya..
she also gave me a featherweight case.. I wonder where the machine is... I think the daughter took it not knowing there was a case..

I don't know what to do with it because it has the already quilted backing on it..so if i were to quilt around anything it would not look good with that backing... i have never had one like this before...lol
