I decided to take advantage of the fact we haven’t moved yet to take pictures of my favorite quilt on our trusty, rustic fence.
This quilt was given to me by my mother-in-law a few years ago. She found it while cleaning out her own mother-in-law’s home of 50ish years. Our guess is that it was made by my husband’s great-grandmother. I felt so privileged that she would give it to me – but I think she knew I would give it a loving home. And it will be a special treasure for my girls one day to have this family heirloom.
One reader just asked about quilting. Good eyes! No, this quilt is not quilted. It is only tied. This is perhaps it’s greatest flaw. The ties do not hold the quilt together as much as I would like and it is therefore a bit fragile. The more a quilt is quilted, the better it will hold up in the long run.
But I love it none the less.
This quilt gives me a nice case of the warm fuzzies.
Okay, sorry about the rant. Deep breath. I feel better now. You are all such patient friends.
