Show and Tell Friday


It’s time for Kelli’s Show and Tell Friday.  Today I want to share a special quilt.  This was made by my husband’s grandmother, whom I never had the pleasure of knowing.  She was quite the prolific quilter.  I imagine that she would have loved my longarm! And, I think she would be thrilled to know that there is now another quilter in the family.  I love the the fabrics in the quilt.  I don’t think I could pick a favorite block.

Thanks for stopping by to see my show & tell item, and thanks to Kelli, for hosting.

  1. One of the best I’ve seen, too. I’m just assuming that she hand-quilted this. I don’t think they did any machine quilting then? I’m a little curious about that. I’m a hand-quilter myself.

  2. Thank you, everyone, for all your nice comments on this quilt. I know my husband’s grandmother would be tickled. I want to clarify, she made this quilt in it’s entirety. I did not quilt it. She handquilted this.
