This hand made quilt was pieced by my grandmother in the 1920's and was quilted by my mother in the 1940's.
|Yellow pieces are new, including center circle|
The fabrics are from the family's clothing, sheets, etc. Much of the fabric has deteriorated to an alarming level, so I decided to take on the repairs necessary. As you can see I was using white thread at first.
|blue piece and black piece are new|
I decided that I had to work with a better technique and color of thread.
|bluish triangle piece is new|
I'm trying to get the stitches to be invisible, and hope that I will get it figured out soon!
The pieces in the quilt average about 1 in. in size, and my favorite thing about the quilt are the tiny pieces. The squares in the quilt are each different in design, but are all very beautiful. If any of you are quilters, and have suggestions, please share them with me.
