Quilt To Share with Bloggers Quilt Festival

This is a family quilt, belonged to Hubby's Mom, she started it, never got it quite finished, so I rescued it (NO ONE ELSE IN THE FAMILY WANTED IT DO YOU BELIEVE THAT) took it to Hubby's Aunt (His Mom's Sister) who was 90 years old at the time and she and I finished it. She did most of the hand quilting, the quilt is totally hand stitched and hand quilted. I helped with the binding, so I can't say I "really" made it but I defnately saved it. So I claim dibs on it from now on. :) ISN'T IT BEAUTIFUL. The fabric is old feedsacks from the 30's.

  6. I just noticed your about me section. I hate daylight saving time and that is one of my favorite quotes too!! People think I'm nuts that I don't enjoy it being light out until 10:30 at night. Maybe we're long lost twins....
