I was also asked by a lovely older lady to finish some work that was started by her grandmother and mother in the 1940s. She had a bag full of pieces for a double wedding ring quilt; the rings were sewn together by hand with the tiniest 1/8th of a seam. The fabrics were in pretty good shape, with just a little thinning and staining. I was able to sew them together to make a throw-size quilt.
She also gave me a bag-full of crocheted squares. I think it was a popcorn pattern made with thin, off white cotton floss. The squares were beautifully crocheted by her mother about 80 years ago. I sewed them together to make this lovely bed runner.
