    My husband's grandmother, Elnora Carter Foote, was a very gifted quilter. DH says he has fond memories of her and "all the old gals" sitting around a quilting frame, hand quilting. This first picture is one of her quilts. We found it last autumn in Jim's dad's sheep camp trailer. We rescued it! It's reached a point where it can never be used as a quilt again. But it can be displayed. And used as inspiration.
