Cathedral Quilt

Lots of people like to make quilts..and we all need them!
This is a quilt made by my Sister In Law, Eva Wright.
It is called Cathedral Window..I think.
She worked on this quilt for a L..o.n..g  time.
Every stitch done by hand.
An heirloom to be passed down to future generations!
Quilting is more than a hobby..it is something precious that can be used,
And passed on to our family.

I have an old quilt made by my Mom many years ago.
Though it is tattered and worn, I keep it on my bed,
and sleep with it every night.
 Though many years have passed I can still feel Mama's love
that went into making this quilt,
and
It keeps my spirit warm!
I have a picture in my heart of her sitting by the wood heater 
in our mountain farmhouse stitching on her quilts.
Precious Memory.
Have a great day!
Love,
Shirley

  2. I made one of these (queen size) in the 80s. It took me a loooonnnng time. My grandmother had so many quilts that she had made. I wish I had one of them now but back in the 50s when we went to her house I thought how old fashioned they were. I wondered why she didn't buy some blankets. We do live and learn. LOL
    Thank you for sharing and bringing back the memories.
    Blessings,
