    Amazing find, and yes, I agree someone spent a lot of time making this top for someone. Maybe there was a divorce (or the receiver passed unexpectedly?) and that is why it was never finished. You did a wonderful job quilting and I know you will love it for years to come.

    OM! what a pretty quilt. Those fabrics could have come from my stash. This beauty has found a good home. Remember to write a little story about her and give her a name. This will hopefully ensure she will always have a home.

    What a lucky top to find a home with a LAQer who could make it into a beautiful quilt. Almost a Cinderella story :>)

    I have a quilt I finish a while back. It has 3 out of 4 of the fabrics in this quilt. I must like those colors.
