Show and Tell Friday
I'm so glad I found Show and Tell Friday at There is No Place Like Home! What a great idea!
Today I am sharing a picture of the quilt that hangs in my living room. It was hand quilted in the 70s by my husband's great grandmother (you can click on the picture to view it larger). She was very elderly at the time.
She used all sorts of scraps for the stars and they are mostly from old clothes. I don't know any of the stories behind the different fabrics because she died before my husband and I met. My mother-in-law has told me that she never wasted anything and made several beautiful quilts with scraps and old sheets.
I love this quilt and it is a joy to have it as a part of my everyday life and a symbol of our family heritage.
