    Not boring! You turned someone's lovely stitchwork into a useful and lovely quilt.

    When I got my great granny's quilting stuffs, there were two completely finished quilt tops hand pieced by her. And a stack of 17 block she had made not yet put into a top yet... I was still very new to quilting and wasn't sure what to do with them... I had the Grandmothers flower garden and the Bethlehem Star quilt tops quilted. My quilter said it was some of the best hand stitches she had ever seen.

    But, still what to do with the 17 Star blocks?? Well, I bought some Reproduction fabrics, and made 17 Star Blocks of my own, different than hers, and then put them all into one quilt I call "Granny and Me".

    Congrats on your vintage rescue!!
