Framed Pieces of the Old Quilts



My grandparents died in 2005 and we found these 2 old quilts in a trunk in a shed. I brought them home and washed and couldn't really decide what to do with them. They were rotted in several places and fell apart when washed. I didn't want to waste them tho. Some of the pieces have holes in them that we framed. Finally, (for the 5th Christmas without them) I decided to frame pieces for my 2 sisters and mom. Have pieces for my DD and myself to do yet. The pieces are 8X14. Also made Christmas ornaments from small pieces. Will post later.

I love it all! How many GooseBerry Books do you have!? Loved you churches and noticed a lot of Christmas books.

What a wonderful idea. How nice to share the pieces of the quilts with your family.
