'I remember Laura.'


On Miss Sandy's blogthere is a new blog-a-thon starting this week in remembrance of Laura Ingalls Wilder. This first week the topic is quilts and any special details and memories we have of them. Check out Miss Sandy's blog on Quill Cottage to find out the details.

Here are a couple of pics of my treasured quilt. This is handquilted in three sections and it too about one year to complete with two quilters working. It was made for my parent's wedding on December 28th 1948.by two of my father's aunts. Although the photo shows it on a bed I don't use it as such as it's too precious.

Your white work quilt is a vision of loveliness.

The white quilt is so pretty. I can see all the stitching, and I totally understand why you don't have it out all the time. It is a beauty to look at though!

This quilt is a wonderful heirloom with its link to your parents and to the aunts who quilted it.

The quilting on this piece is amazing in detail! It must have taken quite a while to complete it. What a precious treasure you have! Thank you for sharing and for participating in the blog-a-thon.

Blessings,
Miss Sandy
