great Grandma making the quilt-1953

One thing I have in common with the Antiques Roadshow folks,I flip when there's a vintage item and a pic of it when it was brand new to go with it. This is a pic of an old family quilt made by my great Grandma in 1953,and the actual quilt today. Now,the quilt was MADE in 1953,but most of these patches are from old dresses and other items from the 20's and 30's

 

My Mom is gonna take the quilt and pic to her quilting group,I know those old hens will be CLUCKING over this!

 

The best part of this: this pic was found in a box old family photos that I had not seen or gone through yet,right away I saw pics of me at a Halloween church party from like 8th grade. So there's gonna be some great Happy Fun Scan Time up in here!
