My son-in-law entrusted me with his wonderful family quilt. It is a much loved quilt that needed a little tender loving care. So I have a nice hot cup of coffee and my audio book ready to go while I spend this afternoon nursing this gem back to health. I wonder what Grandma was pondering when she hand stitch this lovely together...
This was a very quilty weekend for me. Yesterday I spent a lovely (again rainy) day with my mom and my quilting sister. We took a wonderfully scenic trip to Bennington, VT., to see the Jane Stickle quilt at the Bennington Museum. A must see trip for any "Janiac" and Bennington is such a quaint New England town.
It is in amazing condition especially when you realize that this quilt was made in 1863. A most amazing scrap quilt. Each block is made from a different fabric. Jane must have had the most amazing collection of scraps.
Are you doing any slow stitching on this Slow stitching Sunday?
