ONE OF MY FAVORITE QUILTS:
I decided to participate in the First Annual Blogger's Quilt Festival being held by http://parkcitygirl.blogspot.com/ There are so many quilts over there you would take a week to get through them all. So many talented people, I know I will never get through them all but I can at least look at a few. I think that parkcitygirl has really hit on something here.
I say one of my favorite quilts because...it is hard to pick just one. This one I love because of what it is. Not just a Sunbonnet Sue but the ties it was made out of.
Recently I had to take care of my mom in another state from where I live. The sweet lady, Norma, next door owns this quilt. I have know this woman all my life and I love her to pieces. I was visiting one night when my mom was in the hospital and she asked me about my quilts. Then she told me about this one and asked if I would like to see it.....well yeah! She said it wasn't anything too great then she brought it out....Oh dear I promptly told her what a "treasure" she had there.
The Sue's were made from ties that Norma had gathered and some sheets. The lady that made it Mrs. Fox, I never knew her but I remember some things that went around about her. Like her house was full of cats and there wasn't enough room in there to turn around in. All sorts of things like that. This woman has passed on but this quilt is so very nice. I think if you click on some of the photos they will be bigger and you can see what a lovely job she did in making it and in quilting it. Also note the year.
And here is one of my favorite blocks..There were several but I think I liked this one the best. Just something about it. The quilt is huge as you can tell and I think it would fit more like a comforter on a twin bed.
