    Look at this beauty....

    Back in October I met up with a cousin that I had not seen in quite a while (years) and we got to talking about quilts. She said she had one that her grandmother had made and would I be interested in having it...well, of course, I said yes! A few weeks later I got this gorgeous quilt in the mail. All hand made and hand quilted by my great-grandmother. It is in fantastic shape...I was so thrilled when I opened the box, I had no idea that the quilt she was sending me was so beautiful. She died in 1933, so it has to be about 90 years old. Pretty neat...don't you agree?

          I have one of those too!!! Mine isn't quite as old, only seventy, I think, but lovely just the same! It was made by my grandma for my parents when they got married, all stitched by hand.

                    Barb, it is where I can see it. I put it in my quilt curio cabinet with the other antique one that I have that my GGM's sister made. It is the one that my granddaughter is wrapped up in, that is in one of my albums. I want to preserve them so I can pass them on to my granddaughters.

                          Oh, Pat, how beautiful. I can just imagine that you feel a connection to your great-grandmother when you run your hand over that treasure. I don't have quilts made by my grandmother but I do have quite a few things that she embroidered that I use as table toppers. I also have one that I started with her as she was trying to teach me.
