I’ve unearthed a few more old quilts. When I first started, I didn’t have a stash. My mom gave me this old green sheet that had belonged to her mother. I used it to make this small baby quilt. I hand quilted it. It was darn near impossible to get a needle through that sheet!
This next one was made from the first civil war type reproduction fabric I ever purchased. It is hand quilted with poly batting. Poor choice!
These last two were made by my two oldest children. They used fabric crayons. The first was by Daughter #1.
This one by Number 1 Son.
Who knows what will turn up next? Have a great day!
When my kids were young, all of the grandkids coloured “pictures” on a piece of white fabric for my parent’s anniversary. Fast forward 26 years or so – mom was gone, and dad is in a nursing home – and no one had a use for the tablecloth. I didn’t want my kid’s artwork ending up at Goodwill, so I grabbed the tablecloth, with no purpose in mind… Now I have to remember where I put it – gotta make mini quilts of their “drawings”. Thanks for the inspiration!
I love looking back! I remember making two quilts for my kids with fabric crayons. And, I don’t think the poly batting was a bad choice, as I recall it was our “only” choice. I couldn’t find cotton batting anywhere in the 80’s and 90’s. Thanks for sharing.
They are all treasures! I’m so glad you shared them with us. Hugs,
