This past weekend I was at my in-laws for Memorial Day. I discovered that they had been hiding vintage quilts from me! (Okay, not really, I just didn't know about them!) I went in the garage to talk to my father-in-law, and spotted a quilt WITH hand quilting AND hand pieces y-seams! I did the whole, "oh my gosh!!! What, where, and why?!" It was sitting on the water heater and Kyle just said I could have it because it was in an old trunk that he got at a yard sale. That got me started and my mother-in-law,Cathy, got out some old family quilts that my husband's great grandmother made! So, here are pictures of a couple of those.
Dresden fan quilt made by Linwood's great grandmother White. Her daughter, Evelyn is Linwood's grandma and is now in her 90's. she told me that there was a lady who would do the hand quilting on these for $3. THREE DOLLARS. I am still trying to grasp that over here.
Have a great day!
