Great, Great Grandmother made My Mom a Quilt

Pin It
This is the quilt that started it all for me. See Story
I had been making quilted pillows.

Pin Wheel Quilt

We moved to Burlington, IA and I went to a few quilt classes, auctions and was learning about quilting at every turn.

On a visit down to see us, my mother arrived with this quilt for me. As a child I'd never seen it, never heard anything about it.

My Great-great grandmother had made it for my mother. Mom remembers helping with cutting of the fabric and helped pump the sewing machine.

It's machine pieced and hand quilted.

The edge and it's tiny stitches. 
This quilt is never used. 
I have it out on a bed, I just like to look at it
