I love the designs that people come up with to make quilts. There are all kinds of patterns and kits. Sometimes you can just use a sewing machine to make the quilt making easier and faster.
Quilts are old fashioned and just pretty. I would love to have quilts in a beautiful cedar chest for storage and also to use to make a beautiful statement for decor.
I love the colors of the above quilt.
One of my favorite flowers is the Heavenly Blue Morning Glory. The style of the quilt above is reminding me of a Claire Murray design.
I love the above idea for a border for a baby quilt. Just adorable.
Love the above idea with a little frog pattern for a baby boy quilt.
My Mom made a Butterfly quilt with her cousin when she was a kid that was similar to the above quilt. I would like to make one like it to honor her memory.
A quilt called a Yo-Yo Quilt was also popular back in my Mom’s time and she said that she made a Yo-Yo quilt. I love the colors of the above Yo-Yo quilt.
When I was looking for Butterfly Quilts, I came across the above idea. So pretty.
I like the above pattern. It reminds me of a sunburst.
I like the above color combination, also.
Quilt pillows are awesome in my opinion, also.
One of my Grandmothers had quilts that she made stored in a trunk at their farm house. My aunt said that the key to the trunk was lost, so I never got to see the quilts. I can only imagine them. I bet they were beautiful.
My Grandmother saved all of my Mom’s baby clothes. She gave them to my Mom for my sister who was the first born. I can only imagine how cute they were. I never got to see any of them. Must have gotten lost in the shuffle before I was ever born as I am 8 years younger then my sister and there were two babies born between me and my sister.
My Mom used to tell me about a little Fox fur hat, jacket and muff that she had when she was little. I asked my aunt about it and she said that it was still at the farm a ton of years ago and my Mom could have them if she wanted. In other words, it was not for me. I never even got to see them. I think I was the only sentimental one. My Mom was not interested in it. And after my aunt passed, everything on the farm was just either given away or auctioned off. I did get some keepsake photos that my Gram had and a letter that my Mom wrote when she was 10 years old that was written to her Mom. I treasure them.
I love the stories my Mom used to tell me about her life as a kid. Rural, northern Vermont was cold in the winter and it still is to this day. It borders on Canada.
She went to school by horse and sleigh with a heating stone and a buffalo robe for warmth and the school was a one room school house. When she was a teenager, she went to a private school and bordered there.
Times have changed, but I still like some of the ways that they had in a much more laid back and enchanting time.
