Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I read the article. How sad that someone had thrown these quilts away and how wonderful that they were rescued by someone who appreciated them. There should be a place to send unwanted quilts so they can be forwarded to loving homes!
I will never understand how people can just throw anything that was made with love in any generation!
Love the story. Why would anybody through away a quilt?
It is stories like this that makes me keep my eyes open for a chance to help someone. I know when I am gone our kids won't care about many of our keepsakes.
What a great idea!
"There should be a place to send unwanted quilts so they can be forwarded to loving homes!"
I'm so glad they were rescued.
i can't even imagine throwing away quilts such as those!
I still have a beautiful braided rug that I pulled out of a dumpster about 8 or 9 years ago. Brought it home, washed it up and have used it ever since! Just don't understand why people do what they do.
Such beautiful pieces of history!!! I wonder if the people who threw the quilts away saw the newspaper article.
