    Many of you know that my Mom and Step Dad were coming on Father's Day. (they made it and now are on their way back home) :cry: Anyways, I had made the quilt for my Step Dad as he is always doing things for me since DH can't.
    They brough with them these beautiful quilts.. all made by his Paternal Grandmother around 1950 or so.

    He also made my 4000D set into the table top (I used my old dining room table). So now when I do quilting it'll be nice and flat... He also did something for my serger (no pic yet), but will share that later..

    Here's the quilts.. they're in excellent conditon. I'm asking for a Quilt ladder for my b/d. Only 3 more months to wait! *L*

    The quilts are beautiful and what a treasure your step Dad is to share them with you. Can't wait to see them hanging on your new quilt ladder.

    Those quilts are beautiful. As far as I know, no one in my family quilted, until me, so I will never Inherit such a treasure, at least from family. So glad your folks got to visit and so nice of your "Dad" to make that desk into a sewing table!!!

    That was so sweet of him. Great concept.

    The quilts.......don't think I can pick the ones I like best. I'll take them all! :wink:

    They will look stunning in a quilt ladder. How fast can three months go by??

    Those are really beautiful quilts, and your parents are obviously the very best. I know you treasure them even more than the quilts, which are priceless heirlooms!

    How sweet your stepdad is. He is one special person to give you his grandmother's quilts. What was her name? Is it on the quilts? I hope he told you all about her. Those are the stories at are passed on with the quilts for the future generations that are so neat to hear. And the reason some of us make these, to be remembered fondly, with smiles. If he didn't, maybe he could write you all the information and send it to you.

    I love the way he set in your machine. You are going to be able to manuver much easier with your quilts now, for sure!

    Wow! What a great step dad you have! Those quilts are beautiful. He must think a lot of you to give you heirlooms from his family. And that's a nice setup for your sewing machine.
