Crazy About Quilts

OK, I am ready to admit it. I have a problem with a certain soft item…

image

I must have them all over the house…

image

Yes! I am crazy about quilts. There is something about them…all of them…pristine ones from a long stored hope chest…

image

Well loved ones that have kept babies warm and served as forts for active little boys for generations…

image

But I ask you, who could resist the colorful charm…or the ability to literally touch the past?

image

 

Perhaps you can even touch generations back on your own family tree…

image

A treasured past to pass down to our future…

  1. What a collection you have! My grandmother spent every spare moment making quilts. My mom sewed my clothes and then she used the scraps to make my quilt…a sunbonnet. I can still picture the outfits each quilt piece were from. What a lovely memory you stirred up with that.

    1. That must have been heart-breaking. I have learned that memories don’t depend on a particular item…and managed to purge years of stuffed animal collections from childhood and high school notes. The happy memories of that quilt will last forever.
