What an honor to view these quilts

When I was in Michigan last week to celebrate a family member's wedding I also got to get together with a few of my best buds one of them is the proud owner of some wonderful quilts that her husband's mother made and gifted to her.
There were at least a dozen quilts most hand pieced, a few had some machine piecing but all of them were hand quilted. The quilter's name is: Lydia Sommer (maiden name/Oswald). The quilts are amazing I felt so lucky to be able to view, touch ;-) and dream away about them.
