  1. Hi Kitty!
    I fell in love with quilts from the very first moment I felt one as a child. I loved all the puckers of a washed and dried quilt. Like hooked rugs for the same feel.
    And, you’re right. They do connect us to the past in a very direct manner.
    Happy Weekend, blogfriend!

  2. They’re gorgeous! I have an all white quilt with fun stitching on my bed, but I didn’t make it. I’ve always wanted to learn to quilt. I’m crafty with most things, but I seem to be impatient with sewing! Have an excellent weekend. I’m off to bed now! 🙂

      1. My rehab continues, though I fell yesterday. I am still pushing through this. I am only just regaining enough strength to be interested in commenting, so please forgive me if I don’t comment. Know that I read each post!

  3. I love my quilts that a great-grandmother, a grandmother, and mother gave me. They truly are a mirror to the past. I love your insight on this!

  4. Stunning! I’m so fascinated by the 19th century period. Also, since I can remember, I’ve been such a huge fan of Laura Ingalls Wilder and still love Little House On The Prairie. It’s so wonderful because I’m now reading the books to my 5 year-old daughter. 🙂
