    Family Heirloom Treasure

    Attached are pictures of a quilt I found when I decided to clean out some clothes I had been storing for a while. The quilt was at the bottom of the plastic tote I thought I only had blouses in. When I discovered the quilt I had a strong suspicion it may have been one my mother made, or possibly my Grandmother. I washed it carefully, dried it on the line and tucked it away again for safety. My neice stopped by today. She spent many hours with my mom sewing and talking. They were like best friends. Anyway, when I showed her the quilt, she said Mom told her it was the last quilt her mother made her!! What a treasure! Considering I learned to sew and quilt from my Mom and Grandmother. To actually have one my grandmother hand quilted is beyond measure. I had to share the story with others who would understand the feelings I am going through and how much this quilt means to me.

    The second picture shows how much our new pup Sadie has grown. She loves her picture taken too. The third one shows the hand quilting.

    Thanks for sharing your time and my memories.
