I love all quilts especially old ones. The ones that were made when quilting was a necessity. When loving hands stitched away every night to make quilts to keep families warm on cold winter nights. I could sit and look at the fabric for hours wondering if feed sacks were used or remnants from clothing.
This quilt top was given to me and I think it may have been my grandmothers. It is all hand stitched and is badly stained in places. Someone also loved purple that pieced this top!
It's in really bad shape and I am not sure what to do with it. Suggestions? If you are a quilter I need help! Do I leave it as it is or "work" on it?
This double wedding ring quilt was also my grandmother's. I've had it for years and I have always loved the wedding ring pattern. All the tiny little pieces! It is always on display on a chair in the piano room.
A closeup of the fabrics and stitches in the quilt. It has about every color in the colorwheel. Love it!
And finally another special quilt.
When my mother-in-law passed away last year this is the only thing my husband wanted that belonged to her. This wonderful quilt made by his grandmother. I thought it was so sweet that he would want a quilt ;) He knew it would have a loving home in our house. Of course I was a happy girl. I washed it and it is in great shape.
It is in style now with all the aqua colors used in decorating these days.
When I took this pic I noticed right in the center there is another purple quilt block with sweet little flowers.
When I look at these treasures it makes me appreciate all the wonderful tools that is available to quilters these days! I can only imagine how much time it took to cut each little piece of fabric for these quilts.
Thanks for visiting!
