"Grandmother's Garden" Quilt
This is the sixth
generation quilt for our family! My
grandmother's grandmother made it in the 1920's. It's a lovely quilt made
in the "Grandmother's Garden" pattern. Of course, every piece is hand
stitched, and the entire quilt was hand quilted by my
great-great-grandmother. I love the colors and prints! They're so
typical of the era.
My 88 year old grandmother was quite young
when it was finished, but she still remembers her mother's step-mother.
This quilt has had beautiful care taken of it; it is in perfect condition.
There are a few flowers that have different shades of fabric for the middle ring. She must have made the
quilt from scraps and run out of some colors. They give the quilt such a unique
stitching on this quilt is elegant, showing the hundreds of hours spent creating
this beautiful quilt! This is one of our favorites!
