gingham quilt


My great-aunt made many quilts in her life and I have 2 of them, maybe 3. (Maybe 3 is a story for another day.) this is a hand-pieced top; she must have wanted to use up all her gingham scraps. It's pretty bright and cheerful and if I get a long-arm I actually plan on getting it quilted. I'm sure it will be one of those problem quilts since the edge will surely ripple...

So lovely and yes, cheerful. Where do you keep all of your quilts? You are so lucky to have such special family heirlooms.

What a beautiful keepsake quilt! I love the vintage fabrics in this quilt! I collect vintage fabrics and enjoy working with floral cottons and feedsack fabrics. The colors are nostalgic and wonderful!
