Today I bought a quilt



I bought this quilt today...it is full size, needs a few minor minor repairs...I just love it. It has hand embroidery, machine applique, machine and hand quilting. I bought it from a woman who says her great grandmother made it, and she knows it is at least 40 yrs old. I think it is older. It always amazes me when people sell their family handmade stuff.

Oh Jess!! I am planning to make a Sunbonnet Sue one of these days. Yours is so beautiful. Geez, I hope my family doesn't sell off all of my stuff when I am gone! WOW!

I'm thinking it more like 60-70yrs or more.
Way cute!
What one person cherishs may mean nothing to another regardless of family ties~a shame but common.
