Default Treasured gift from BIL

Today my BIL gave me a treasured gift. He is 84,widowed,no children. He wanted me to have a quilt his mother made. She was born in 1888 and passed in 1968. It is in perfect condition. Maybe a little yellow -but what does that matter - I can assure you that at my picture is very inferior. The colors are beautiful. He knew I would care for it. He actually gave me two. One needs repairs where piecing threads have broken. I promised I would fix it and return to him. We have several family members that would love the quilts!! He had several --two sun bonnet Sues made by his mother and one other rag quilt as he called it. All are almost perfect. I would have loved them but he gave me the one he liked best. I did tell him I would add a small label with his mothers name and dates so she would not be forgotten by nieces and nephews. He was happy for that!!! I just had to share!!

What a lovely quilt and how nice of him to give it to you. Glad you're going to label it for future generations.

What a blessing. He knows you will take care of it and respect it. Putting a label on it is a good idea.
