    Grandmother's quilt 1922

    Deep down I think this is the one that got it all started. Like I don't have enough iron's in the fire.
    Goldie Blanch Burns made this quilt as she lay in bed recovering from a Copperhead Snake bite on her foot.

    I found something similar to this when my father in law passed away in 2001. We were going through some of his things and I found a trunk that had old quilts in it and in the bottom was a quilt top. Such a great find to work on and finish for my husband.

    What a treasure. It looks great. That is a lot of work for hand piecing.

    Yes, this is a treasure. Not just for me but my family as well. I have tried to instell a love of history in my kids, I just hope it takes. People don't realize just how much of are American history is thrown away every day.
