For this week's Pink Saturday, I wanted to share a quilt that my maternal grandmother created for me when I was just a little girl. I estimate that that the quilt is at least 45 years old.
The only problem with the quilt is that it has some old stains on it. I tried to take it to several different cleaners, but because of it's age, no one will touch it! I have always loved this quilt. My grandmother was such an excellent seamstress and skilled in needlepoint. She appliqued these beautiful flowers onto this bedspread.
Here is the center of the bedspread. The flowers are so lovely!
Here you can see it up closely. She embroidered the stitching on those flowers!
See that blue dot? This is not an appligue, it's embroidered also! When I was little, I used to love to rub my finger across the embroidered dots because they were so soft and silky!
I sure wish I had taken better care of this when I was little and when it came to me as a young adult! I didn't realize its value at the time. It is now draped over a wicker plant stand that I have in my bedroom where I can look at it every day!
