This is my first Vintage Thursday post. Each week we get the chance to share something vintage with you, all thanks to Lisa from Confessions of an Apron Queen And as I am going to be 53, most of my items are surly 30 years or older!! I hope you enjoy it. Here is a small background; my great-grandmother quilted, I remember playing under her quilting frame as a child. My grandmother did not sew or quilt. My mother was an outstanding seamstress but did not quilt; I am lucky enough to do both but my heart belongs to quilting. It breaks my heart to say that there is not one of my great-grandmothers quilts to be found. My mother had ovarian cancer and left us 17 years ago but before she passed I was lucky enough to find this piece of handiwork tucked in her dresser drawer. When I asked her about it, she said it was the only patchwork quilt she ever made and it was for her doll. This little piece of “art” hangs in our bedroom and brings me much joy.
In addition she enjoyed doing embroidery. I also found and begged her for this embroidered piece. I took that piece, added a border and just did some light hand quilted. This hangs in our bedroom as well.
I hope you enjoyed the pictures and I can’t wait to look at yours too! Jane
