Inherited Quilt Top

I just got this quilt top in my home tonight. My great grandmother made this quilt top back in the 1960's. It was sewn on a treddle machine. Mom has had this quilt top tucked away for a while and has talked about finishing it. However she hasn't had the chance to ever finish it. So knowing my passion for quilting, she decided to give it to me.

I think I'm going to go and make it into a wall hanging. I don't want to risk it being mis-used being something of heirloom quilt like this is. I am so very excited to get this finished and hung up to display!

Each block is made from old clothes or blankets that were not being used anymore...and I love it.
