Family Heirloom

As i've been going through my boxes, my mother has decided to go through hers too. Our garage looks like a bomb went off! Anyways, she came across this quilt top in one of her boxes. It's HUGE! 8 ft. wide by 10 ft. long. and the blocks are tiny, about 3 x 3.

It's a leftover scrap quilt and it's so cool looking and VERY WELL done! Everything is so straight and the back of it has no obvious flaws! Come to find out, my Grandma Aiton made it! I had no clue she quilted! I was very lucky enough that my mother decided to hand it down to me and it's now my job to finish it off. TALK ABOUT PRESSURE!

Grandma Aiton was a crafty lady! I knew she crocheted, but didn't know about the quilting. btw Logan is currently rocking out to your playlist...Aqua to be exact.
