    Old quilt top handquilted for a friend

    She bought this top at a garage sale. It has some stains on it, but it was an unusual pattern so she bought it and brought it to me to quilt.

    Great job. It's wonderful of both of you to salvage someone's work and give it new life. I'm sure she's smiling at you both!

    It always warms my heart when someone rescues a quilt. This one was rescued and finished. Great job.
