Grandma's quilts

Here is a lovely quilt my grandmother and some other relatives hand pieced and hand quilted. My mom has passed this lovely quilt down to me.

It is hand appliqued and embellished. I just love the butterfly pattern. Every butterfly is made with different fabric, possibly from different dresses that the girls wore. There were 7 girls and 3 boys in my moms family. She said she wanted to make sure she got the quilts so she bought several of them. She said buying them kept the others from having any hard feelings that she got them. I am very appreciative that they are now being passed down to me. Blessings, Debbie

Oh, I love that quilt!!! Butterflies are very special to me so this quilt is especially beautiful in my eyes. I love the fact that it was all hand-made, too! I'm glad that you were able to end up with this pretty quilt!
