My aunt found this unfinished quilt top with my grandmothers things after she passed. She gave it to me thinking I'm the only one likely to do anything with it. I've started working on it after studying how the original pieces were put together. It was a scrap quilt, most likely made out of old clothes, but I'm not sure. I'm finishing it using material and scraps that were with her sewing things. I have plenty to work with. The original piece had around 500 hexagons. When I'm done, I've estimated that it will have around 3000. All hand stitched. I didn't use EPP for this because I didn't know that was a thing until I logged onto here, lol.

It's beautiful Clare!  I know you'll get to finish it for your grandmother one day.

Very pretty, it is so special to work on something from your grandmother.  I have done the same, but my Granny is still alive and well at 94.  This is already lovely, it will be spectacular when completed!

Thank you all! It's been an adventurous puzzle so far. I think my aunt is more excited than I am about it. She calls me about once a week and asks about it. I'm glad to share it with her and she's anxious to see it. I haven't shown her my work so far, but she'll she see it this weekend.
