    Grandmother's quilts

    My wife found her grandmother's quilt stored away in a an old cabinet. While not our "normal" item of discussion, I thought I'd share them and bring back some old memories. These are all hand sewn and one is especially interesting because of the material used.

    Those are beautiful!

    I have sort of a thing for quilts living near a large Amish society. I just love all the unique designs and such attention to detail. Also my wife and her father both are quilters - my father-in-law does a lot of them in the winter now that he is retired.

    Really cool! Made at a time when we did not live in a "throw away" society, and everything was reused/repurposed.

    Those are awesome!!

    Grandmother's quilts

    Thanks for sharing. Those do bring back memories. I lived with my grandparents from 2-9 yrs old. I remember going with her to quilting b's quite often . Mamaw would make up her squares before the get together. The ladies would lower a large frame down from the ceiling and they would get to work sewing in the patches. I was bored to tears and remember chasing the chickens around the yard all day. It was the first time I ever seen someone cut the head off of a chicken . That sucker ran around for awhile , without a head . Sweet memories

    Also... Remember sleeping under those quilts. Since the farmhouse was heated by fireplace, it was always cold at night. Mamaw would pile 4 or 5 of those quilts on me. I originated the term " I can't breathe". Lol
