Airing of the Quilts!
I have several quilts, made by my great grandmothers. This one is the most exquisite.
My maternal great grandmother was a fantastic quilter.
The tiny perfect stitching is beautiful.
Here's a close up of the intricate detail!
Love looking at the pattern of stitching on the open white areas.
Here's a very warm wool quilt.
Isn't the backing a cozy pattern?
Another wool quilt. I keep both of the wool quilts in the family room. They are so warm!
The colors and pattern are beautiful.
The fabric backing this quilt is a soft plain white.
The final quilt is the most worn.
A totally different pattern.
It still has the delicate and beautiful, intricate stitching!
I keep my quilts out where I can see them every day, and use them. The wool quilts are especially appealing right now with the cooling weather and their warm colors.
Make sure to visit Dayle today for Airing of the Quilts!!! Great fun as we display our beautiful treasures! Thanks Dayle, for hosting this wonderful event!
And I certainly should link with Laurie for A Few of My Favorite Things Saturday!
