I found this old quilt neatly wrapped up in the bottom of the chest.
This old crazy quilt was passed down to me from my Mother-in-law. It was made by her Aunt. I remember her telling me that her Aunt had used some of her cousins old clothing for the fabrics. And that she had to make it pretty big because her cousins all slept in one bed upstairs and there was no heat up there. Some of the fabrics are pretty worn, but thats to be expected from something that's over 100 years old. I love all the hand stitching.
I think I'm lucky to have a Mother-in-law that saves EVERYTHING. (Really, I mean EVERYTHING) Because I get to receive some of the most interesting things.
