Calling Experienced Quilters!

Calling all experienced quilters/sewing friends:
we have been given a collection of absolutely lovely quilt tops that need experienced hands to finish them. If you or someone you know is willing and able to do this, we plan to auction these beauties to support our work, once they are finished.

Here are the gifts we've received from Kathy W., from her late mother's incredible "stash:"
Three lovely quilt tops
The quilt on the right is made of these elements. Check out the chicken mash bag! It's from Kansas. I think this quilt top may be something historic - and really special.
This quilt is made from hexagons - individual hexagons, each one made of two pieces of cotten, filled with a piece of flannel, and then sewn to six other hexagons - then incorporated into the quilt top. Kathy donated several assembled hexagon flowers, along with some of the individual pieces, cut and ready to sew. Complex and original - just waiting to be finished!
Part of a fan type of quilt. It's even signed in embroidery in the center, with more pieces ready to finish.
Beautiful squares - unique.
This photo doesn't do justice to these squares. They are super soft, and I've never seen a pattern like it before. There are quite a few of these.
More assembled squares, waiting to be made into a quilt
A top and some individual pieces; very interesting patterns!
Awesome Alaska scene on the left; beautiful diamond/squares on the right

If any one of these quilts takes your fancy, leave a comment or email me and you are welcome to finish it! This bounty deserves to be finished and enjoyed.
Thank you, Kathy W. and family, for the gift of your mother's beautiful handiwork.
