Below are some photos of a customer's quilt top that I recently finished quilting for him. It was made for him by his grandmother back in 1977, and she embroidered that fact on one of the blocks. The pattern was a popular one which is called "Overall Sam" and depicts little boys in overalls. I like the 3-dimensional handkerchiefs in their back pockets. His grandmother passed on years ago, so he acquired the unfinished quilt back then and brought it to me to quilt and bind to make it into a finished quilt for him. It took 40 years from the time she made it back in 1977 until now, but this quilt finally got finished and I was glad that I got to play a part in making that happen!
