My sister just got married, and she is cleaning out her home, preparing to move in with her new husband. She was married 48 years to a dear man, who got Alzheimer's and passed away. Four years later and totally unexpectedly (to her and all of us), she got remarried this past Friday! Hurrah for happy endings and new beginnings, no matter how old you are!!
This quilt top was in her house, and she does not know where it came from. It is totally hand pieced, even those long sashing strips. I love it...very worn and parts are missing, but it is so charming!
I made a little heart quilt...lots of these have been made and given away. I love hearts!!
My mother had ALS, and before she passed away, she was starting another quilt. This is the last quilt she worked on before her death. My sis gave this to me too.
I love the old fabrics, and the pieces of cloth that made up dresses and aprons that I recognize from my childhood and my sister's as well. Thank you, Mom, for a glorious legacy..I love you so much, and I know you are having fun up in Heaven!!!
