My husband's best gift ever
At least in MY opinion, this is the most wonderful gift my husband has ever received.
His Grandmother made him this quilt. It's a Grandmothers flower quilt and was done 100% by hand - hand pieced and hand quilted. I believe the fabrics came from Grandfather's shirts.... but I am not 100% sure of that.
There are a few minor repair needs, and I do plan to do these once I find some vintage fabric... I hope this happens sooner than later as I'd like the keep the quilt in as good of condition as possible. It sure is a beautiful quilt, though. And, we use it!!
