A Finish and The First Quilt I Ever Made...
Then, yesterday, I helped my husband clean out the garage which was wayyyy over due! I came across a box that was labelled Winter Clothes, but when I opened it, this was the first thing I saw...
It is made out of drapery samples and a few fabric scraps from my mom's sewing stash. The green was purchased especially for the quilt. My Grandmother supervised its' construction.
It was then taken to "Cat's Paw Quilting"- a woman in Los Alamos who had a long arm in her home. She quilted it and bound it for me.
This quilt is worn thin as my husband and I have always used it on our bed until just a few years ago.
I think I will try to find a place to hang it or some other way to display it. This quilt means more to me now than I ever would have imagined upon making it. I think I will make a label for it since it has gone all these long years without one. The label will have more special information on it now than it would have back then anyway.
