Quilt With Us

I had grandma's doilies tucked away in a closet for years.  As a gift to my sisters I made them into quilts to put on their night stands........Don't throw or tuck anything away if it has special meaning.......

Judith, wow; a great gift.

Beautiful gifts Judith. Your family will treasure these. One year I did a similar thing with my grandmother's Hankies. I made pillows for each of my siblings and cousins. They all appreciated them very much.

That was a fantastic way to preserve the dollies and have them seen. I've several from my mother who crocheted them over 60 yrs ago. How did you attach them onto the quilt? I'd love to do this for my sister.

Wowsers!  What a beautiful way to use those lovely old doilies.  Your sisters will appreciate them, I am sure.
