    I have many quilts that my DGM made for me when I was growing up. She never did anything fancy but I didn't care they came from her and that was all that mattered to me.
    Today I was at my folks house going thru my stuff in their basement. I had a tub with a trash bag stuffed in it and when I pulled it out it had 2 quilts I had never seen. My DM said they were my Brother's but she wanted me to have them, she gave some to my sisiter too. My DB does not appreciate things and they would have been lost forever. I brought one of them home because it will fit on my bed. I have never seen some of the prints in this quilt and just had to show it to you all as I know you all will appreciate it as much as I do.

    I'm glad that you found some treasured quilts from your DGM! She made them to be used and appreciated and you definitely will.

    I think it is wonderful what a lovely find,
    I never knew my grandparents on my mothers side but they made all their own linen they even had silk worms to make silk threads to weave, it was all lost in the war when they were murdered by the nazis. only my mother and uncle survived,
    so treasure them for ever

    Thank you. I love It when I find an old quilt my DGM made. I spent a lot of time with her while I was growing up so when i find something of hers it brings back a lot of fond memories.

    Oh, I just love it. And notice there were no quilt police in those days. I love that our GM's didn't agonize over whether corners intersected properly or not. I had one from my GM when I was little, but somewhere along the way I think it got used for a mat on the ground for changing the oil in cars or something. I don't know where it went. My mother never appreciated those things. I guess she just took that handmade stuff for granted as that is all they had growing up. I still can remember its red and blue colors and scrappiness.

    You are so lucky, what charm this has, I love scrappy, my kind of quilts! Thanks so much for sharing I love to see the older utility type quilts as these are my special favourites and I actually try to make mine like these on purpose! I love that often the quilter made up her own designs, with the fabric she had on hand.

    What I call a double love quilt - grandma made it with love and it warms you when you cuddle under it.

    Grandma spent a lot of time on this, and tere's love in every stitch. As a grandma myself, I know.

    and this is why I love gingham, it looks so old fashioned and there it is in your grammas quilt! I'm glad for you that you got it back and can remember her when you keep warm under it.
