My Favorite Things - Quilts

I love quilts! My childhood memories include visits with my Maw Maw and Paw Paw where each night I was tucked into bed with one of her many hand sewn quilts. I would stare at the different fabrics remembering a family member's article of clothing and the memories therein helped me drift off the sleep.

The quilt top in the photo was gifted to me from a dear friend. It was originally hand pieced by a woman who is now in her 90's. I have no idea when it was made but the fabrics appear to be very old. The stitches are uneven, the points don't quite meet and yet those imperfections endear the quilt top even more to me.

Originally I planned to complete the quilt but each time I picked it up, touched the fabrics, looked at the lovingly sewn design...I knew it was perfect as is. So now this quilt has a prominent place in my living room to be enjoyed by all, used by none and thorougly loved by me.

  5. Hi, just discovered your beautiful blog and I'm so glad i did. it's so delightful!!
    I love quilts and yours are stunning beyond words.
    From you previous post I learnt you know ASL. What a pleasant surprise: I can sign as well (LIS: Italian Sign Language) and I'm quite involved in the local deaf community and although I do not have any deaf people in my family I've made some very good friends by attending the deaf club activities on a regular basis.
    Will be back again. Meantime I'll have some fun going thru your older posts.
