    Oh, my!! This could have been my grandma. Her quilting frame was suspended from the kitchen ceiling on cords, and hoisted up when the table was being used. After meals the table was cleared, the frame let down and quilting took place. Great memories. This is a beautiful picture. Thanks for sharing.

    Can you take a guess at the signature? I'd love to see if there are prints available or at least check out other works by the artist.

    Thanks, thanks!

    I have contacted the artist. So far no responce. The picture was not numbered, he might have been a student at the time.. will let you all know. Look for a future post if I ever hear.

    I have enjoyed everyone's memories !

    Wonderful! A great connection with your mother and grandmother. You're so lucky this was passed down to you. :D

    This was purchased in the 1980's in a Berea Kentucky. I just don't know about any relatives. I have named her though.

    Grace. Not Gracy but Grace. Those glasses puts a very business like quality to her.

    She is my guilt buddy, companion.
    Thank you all for commenting !

    What a neat pic. Reminds me of watching the older ladies at church, including my grandmother, quilt.
