    Here is a better view of the 54 yr old quilt hand quilted by my grandmother. It is pink on one side & blue on the other. It was used for all 5 of us children when were baptised. Being the oldest I had the honor of keeping it.

    What a beautiful quilt. It is a wonderful keepsake from your grandma. Before the time of everyone knowing the sex of the unborn child, folks had to be ingenious at quilting and sewing for baby to be. What a lovely clever and talented lady and what a lucky granddaughter!
