    You just gave me a great idea for a scrapbook. I have some of my grandmothers quilts and I just “stole” some of her pictures from my Dad. Great Post.

    Don’t you go cutting up those patchwork quilts, Kristy!! Take a picture of them to use as background. Then post a picture, so the rest of us can see!

    LOL. I wouldn’t do that, but I may steal your idea for next Wednesday;-)

    That looks to be a very nice quilt.

    How beautiful – both the quilt and the creator. She’s got real spark in her eyes.

    Kristy, go ahead and steal the idea. I look forward to seeing what you do with it.
    Letha, it is a nice quilt…but so very fragile now.
    Robin, thanks. Mamaw was pretty sassy, that’s where I got it, I think.

    I am rolling over with Mamaw – great work like that was meant to be used and enjoyed.

    Oh, Simone, it’s too fragile. It should be hung on the wall. Thanks for the visit.~skt

    Just this morning, my kids were planning a quilt. I don’t know that they’ll ever get to it, but I suspect there’s something warm and comforting in the thought.

    LL, how old are your kids? Take pictures while they make it to document the process! I appreciate your visit. ~skt

    What a lovely story behind this picture!!! Interesting!!! Isn’t amazing that in the “old days” people had so much less in material things but had the best quality of life and time. I wished I lived in those days!!!

    Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you’ll come back soon

    Oh, Addie! You do NOT wish you lived back then! That was way too much work for any woman to do! I look forward to visiting you again. ~skt

    Beautiful quilt, and what a beautiful person your Mamaw was (just read your wonderful and heartwarming essay). And yes, the good old days — isn’t that the truth. Lots of hard work, sure, but a whole heckuva lot more heart.

    Mamaw was pretty beautiful, Thomma Lyn. She was also a lot stronger than I could ever hope to be. ~skt

    Beautiful quilt and essay. Family history is precious.

    Thanks for the kind words, Brian ~skt

    Great quilt. I agre that family history is precious, I lknow little of my own sadly

    Best we can do is be in the moment and enjoy what we have now. Thanks for stopping in to visit. ~skt

    What a pretty quilt.

    Thank you, Miss pink. And, thanks for coming to visit!~skt

    There’s nothing like a living, tangible memory that you can wrap yourself up in. Makes you feel warm inside and out!

    Happy WW!

    If I’d only wrap myself up in it! I’m so afraid of tearing the fabric, that I will hardly touch it! ~skt

    Beautiful quilt and an equally beautifully accompanying story…

    I appreciate your kind words, Amber!

    Both my mom and my grandmother left behind a legacy of quilts.

    I hope you get to use yours! ~skt

    Thank you, And, I appreciate the return visit! Come again!~skt

    Love the colors, it does look old and loved. Nice idea for wordless Wednesday.

    Yes, Jen, it was well loved. I dropped by earlier, but I guess you had to go out into the real world today! I’ll stop by later.~skt

    That does look beautiful!
    Happy WW!

    Thanks, Michelle~skt

    It’s a beautiful quilt. I’ve always wanted to get myself one. Now, I think I just may! 🙂

    Everybody needs a quilt…but you need one your Mamaw made! Thanks for stopping by.~skt

    That is a beautiful quilt! What a terrific story to go along with it, and a wonderful keepsake!

    Thanks for visiting.

    Thank you, Dragonheart. I enjoy visiting your site. ~skt

    This is
    Hilarious
    Thank you

    Thanks, Miss Susie! I appreciate the compliment, and I’m glad it tickled you.~skt

    OK, I’m sorry, so embarrassed. I meant to put this on bacon. Beautiful quilt — my Mom quilted too. A blanket of memories.

    It’s easy to get confused! Especially if you are looking around in archives! And, thank you for doing that. It’s a shame to have decent posts in the archives that never get seen! I hope you have some of your Mom’s quilts to comfort you.~skt
