Under the Maple tree....

My grandmother's quilt

Years ago I inherited quilts from my grandmother and my great-grandmother. They were tucked away in a trunk and had never been used. There were also lovely pillowcases with lavender and pale green French knots. I was told that my great-grandmother made these quilts with very poor vision.

I love and cherish these quilts, and I do use them. They are folded and tucked away at the end of the beds in this old house. Today I hung one out to just blow out the cobwebs and it looked so lovely under the Maple tree that I took a photo...for times gone by.
