Grandma's quilts


I have a thing for quilts.
I am always picking up old and new ones.


So when my mother-in-law brought me quilts that were made by her
grandmother I was very excited.


The details are amazing.


I can't imagine how many hours she spent on making  these quilts.


But I can tell you the new owner of these treasures appreciates every stitch.



I am so thankful to have them.


Happy Monday

I love your quilts, I have a fetish with collecting them myself. I am having trouble with blogger right now. No sure if anyone can leave me messages at the moment due to the two word verification, is there help for me. Hugs Mary
