This old quilt was hand appliqued and hand quilted by my grandmother long ago.
It has always been a favorite of mine.
I just love the colors. It has been on the end of my guest bedroom bed for many years.
These old quilts are so much heavier than those made today. I think that she used cotton blankets for the middle of the quilts.
Unfortunately it has many stains that don't go away with dry cleaning..Mollie says "it smells".
I hated to part with it but it went to auction with some other things.
I made this one in the late 70's..
There is no comparison in workmanship.
(Mine is machine stitched).
This past Christmas, my stepdaughter
gave me this lovely quilt that she made.
I just love it and it goes very well with my sofa.
Max has claimed it as his own.
Poor Mollie is stuck with the old stuff..
Yup, Poor Mollie.
