Around 1950 or so, my mother received this adorable quilt as a gift from her grandmother (my grandma's mother, Edna ). It is so sweet that I think it's worth sharing here:
This is probably my favorite out of all the quilts we have. The colors are wonderful--still so bright even though this quilt is 64 years old! The workmanship is beautiful; I can only assume this, but I would guess that my great-grandmother did much of the sewing by hand. Here's a closer look at the stitching:
This quilt is sized for a child at about three feet wide by five feet long. It's been well-cared-for and I'm so glad that we have it. I imagine that my great-grandmother took great joy in making this for her only granddaughter.
Thanks for looking!
