    We have been married for almost 32 years. I really did not have much time for quilting until I retired 4 years ago, but hubby had this quilt top that his mother had hand pieced sometime before she passed away in the mid 1950's. I had just put it away and forgot about it. Last year I got it out and finally got it completed for his Christmas gift.. The fabrics in this quilt are really much different than what we see today. I cannot imagine hand piecing all of this, but I'm sure there are others on this list that may do this type of quilting all the time.

    What a precious gift for him that you finished her quilt. Did he like it? Remember any of the fabrics? Love to know his response.

    So pretty!

    That is awsome. I have a quilt that belonged to my mother-in-law. Older ones are amazing.

    He was very surprised and so happy to have it. Actually, he had forgotten about it also. We now have it on a quilt rack in the livingroom.

    Amazing, after all these years. My hubby picked a quilt he wants for me to make for him. I am going to try to get it done for you 23rd Anniversary.

    I have about 8 of my grandma's quilt tops that I am doing. She hand pieced them and cut out her shapes using scissors and sandpaper & cardboard templates. She didn't use the best fabric. I even found an old table cloth that she had cut some shapes out of. But she wanted each of her kids to have a quilt from her. She has dementia and is in a nursing home now. but I will finish each one and send them on their way. =)

    What a blessing that will be for all of her children. You are to be commended for your hard work and thoughtfulness.

    Beautiful quilt. It was so good of you to finish it for your hubby. It will be a great family treasure made by the two greatest women in his life.
