More Vintage Quilt Tops

I found this pretty quilt top on Etsy.  It is a Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt.  The seller had it for many years, and decided to part with it.  I like it so much, I think I’ll be keeping this one 🙂 A couple more quilts made of vintage quilt tops.  I find tops that I […]
