March is nearly over and I just discovered it’s Quilt Month in the US. It’s so ironic because while I was at home I took these pictures of a quilt I sleep under nearly every visit. I thought it was made by my grandmother, but it turns out I was wrong. My mom said it was made by my great Aunty Belle (Isabelle).
Aunty Bella made it for my mother, a wedding present sometime before 1967. Scraps were used for the stripped part of the log cabin pattern, but the red and blue would have been purchased separately. She would have quilted it by hand. If you look carefully you might see a stitch.
