    My grandma gave me all her quilting things when she went to live with my momma when her health was failing and she could no longer sit at her hand quilting frame and here are some of the treasures I recieved...
    The tops still need quilted.. but I dont mind! :)

    My great grandmother made these blocks

    How very lucky you are to have received your grandmother's treasures. I am sure it helped her transition to living with your mom easier. Just knowing you would use what she gave you has to mean so much.
