Default This one is mine

I posted a picture of the quilt I made for my brother last month. Here's mine. Hand quilted. The white border around the star was taken from our great grandmother's bedspread. The spread was found in a box that was under water in my moms flooded house, really bad shape. I salvaged enough of it for these quilts.

How wonderful to salvage your great grandmother's fabric!!
It's a beautiful quilt and I'm glad you're keeping it.

very pretty and you are truly a hero for salvaging that quilt and re-purposing it--true heirloom.
