    What treasures! My husband's grandmother and mother had made numerous quilts, and the family lost all of them through a remarriage. So sad, so treasure yours and enjoy them!

    What an honor to have those quilts!

    Just think about what our great grandmothers had to do to produce a quilt in the old days. If I had to go to all that trouble without the help of a fancy sewing machine, quarter inch quilting foot, rotary cutters, pre-shrunk batting, disappearing markers, good lighting, etc., I'd probably never even try. Those women really had to work hard just to turn out one quilt. Cherish those quilts girl--they are so special!

    Thanks for sharing, Mary

    They are just beautiful...if only they could tell us what they have "seen". Some great advice regarding the label (and I would lose the safety pin too). Thank you for taking the time to show us such a precious part of your family history.

    You could laminate the note and paper hole punch it, matching ribbon and anchor it to the quilt along with all the names, dates, deaths, etc. This is a family treasure and the story needs to go with this quilt to the future generations. Thanks for sharing with us.

    It would also be nice if you could add a note to the note to say who wrote the original note, aprox. when, and any information, heresay etc. put it in something waterproof and remove the pin....What a tresure....
