    My Grandmother DWR Quilt

    I was finally able to get some pictures of my grandmothers Double Wedding Ring Quilt she made many years ago. I was always amazed as a child of all the colors and tiny pieces that where hand pieced and quilted into this beautiful quilt. It currently has a home at my mothers house, but I hope one day to have it for my very own. Thanks for looking.

    That is beautiful. My grandmama had a iron bed just like that when I was a child. The DWR is on my to do list.

    It is truly beautiful and light and bright. Those were the true fabrics not the reproductions eh? I have several old quilts and I do believe they have some of the same material in them that my great aunt and grandmother made with their mother.

    I also love the room.

    It's beautiful - on my list of "to do's"... I have one partially started with tiny little squares already cut - done by a lady who was 94 when she passed, and I got her "remnants". Kids did not like quilting and did not know all this "junk" was a quilt in motion! So, one day I'll get at it - will be very hard to find like fabric, but have been looking for calicos to stay with the likes of what it was started with... one day it will be finished; might not get to be a queen sized quilt - but finished none the same.

    Gorgeous. I am currently doing one so I am even more in awe after finding how time consuming the pattern is. And I love scrap quilts.

    The decoration of the dresses and hat in the background is just too wonderful

    My Grandmother had made one just like (or close) to this. My cousin got it when she passed, so it lives in Texas and I live in Wisconsin....your Mom's room so fits the quilt!

    I just posted a photo of my Grand Mother's quilt too. Grand Ma quilts are just pure love; it's so nice you have a place you can display it and enjoy it.

    I am too blessed to be stressed and too anointed to be disappointed!
