I just love old quilts, don’t you? There’s just something about them that warms you from the inside out. To me, there is nothing as warm as an old hand made quilt.
This is a closeup of one that belonged to one of my grandmothers. These were made before we had rotary cutters, die cutters & the wonderful fabrics we now have. Can you imagine cutting each piece for a quilt like this, using scissors & a pencil?
Buying fabric for the sole purpose of making a pretty quilt wasn’t an option for many. The fabric was either made from clothing remnants or flour sacks. Things have changed so much, & each era has its advantages & disadvantages. I just wish the fabrics & quilts could tell their stories.
Do you have a favorite quilt? I would love to hear about it.
