My Great-Grandmother made me this quilt.
That would make it around 50 years old.
I remember looking at the soft little bunnies.
I also remember not liking the *patchwork* side of it.
It was rough and the colors were not pretty.
I'm pretty sure it was made out of
men's suit pants
I have been to a few quilt fairs in Houston.
So you KNOW they were fantastic affairs!
Hundreds and hundreds of quilts on display.
They are works of art.
The *quilters* win trophies, medals, honors.
I know they put a lot of work into them.
lots of money.
The fabric is purchased brand new......
and if you have priced fabric for quilts, you know the
finished product is pricey.
When I think of quilts,
I think of the way they used to be made.
That's the way I like to make quilts.
from scraps.....fabric from my own sewing room
If you have a thought on quilts....and scraps....and works of art....
please say so!
