These are some quilts my grandmother, Treva and great-grandmother made. Much of the fabric is from the 20's and earlier!!

I was given them last week along with a box of quilt fronts that were pieced together but had not been finished by either of them. I am wondering what to do with these. Any suggestions?

What an amazing gift! I don't have really any suggestions for what to do with them, other than cherish than forever!

If you decide to complete the quilt fronts I would suggest trying to find material of a similar age for backing and not quilting them. Depending on the material, stitching could create crater like holes.  I think that maybe framing your favorite quilt fronts could be really cool and if done correctly will preserve it for years to come.
