Here is a wonderful story from the owner of this wonderful, mistresspiece crazy quilt:
Well a 17 year old boy doesn’t think a quilt is special, maybe if it had been a 17 year old girl, but I was nice and thanked her for everything, and took the quilt home and complained to my grandmother who told me I was foolish and said to me “I will put this away for a time when you put away your childish ways.”
I forgot about the quilt until my Grandmother died and at the reading of the will it was given back to me, 20 years later. I took it home and showed my wife who fell in love with it and it has been a special part of my home and a reminder of my grandmother’s wisdom ever since."
I don't know which I love more - the quilt or the story.
Detail photos of the embroidery and fabrics are in the previous post. The following post has photos of some of the repair work in progress.
