I wanted to move on from my last post. I haven't been in my sewing room for days, so with nothing new to share I'll share some old.
A quilt made by my grandmother,Millie Moore, with my granddaughter, Jessica, her great great granddaughter..
A simple little quilt that is thread bare, but still loved. Not sure where I found this.
Purchased this quilt at Salvation Army Store for $5. years ago. It is very very heavy, this quilt dated 1900.
A rescue quilt, I stopped a friend from using this as a packing blanket, the edges were tattered and stained, I cut off the bad parts, and made it into a twin size. Not sure how old this one is or who made it.
I purchased this top on ebay several years ago, I hand quilted it then re sold it so it is no longer in my collection but I wish now it was. I love the colors and the way the maker made use of the stripes.
Another ebay quilt top I sent this one out to be quilted, it spends summers on my bed.
The date of this quilt is self explanatory, this quilt was made by my step father's father, the story is he worked on this quilt while being snowed in one winter in Kansas. His future wifes name is also embroidered on it.
This quilt top was made by my ex mother-in-laws aunt in Missouri, she gave it to my ex husband and I hand quilted it. I no longer have it either it went with the ex, along with the next quilt.
This quilt belonged to my ex mother-in-law, she gave it to me as a birthday gift one year, when the divorce happened she wanted it back in her family., so I no longer have it either. I was always going to duplicate this quilt, maybe I will yet.
