Yesterday I showed you some of great grandma Yonah’s quilts, so today I’m going to move down (or is it up?) a generation and show you some of my grandma’s quilts. Just between the 2 generations, you can already tell a huge difference in quilting. Just by looking at them, you can see how quilting had evolved. There’s a huge difference in today’s and yesterday’s pictures. These shots were taken last week on my grandma’s 88th birthday.
I believe this is a Baptist Fan pattern.
And I believe this was in my bedroom when I was little.
I think this is my grandma’s crowning acheivement quilt-wise. This is a 3D cathedral window, that was done primarily by hand.
I can’t even begin to imagine how long this took to make.
But it’s absolutely amazing. My favorite of all my grandma’s quilts.
And I like this green and blue floral print especially.
This Southern girl applique probably has a name other than Southern girl, but I dont’ know what it is.
But it’s pretty.
This pattern is called Playtime Kids, and I love it. It’s been a WIP for her for about….25 years? The quilting still needs to be finished, and then bound. It’ll get done at some point, I’m sure. Here’s some of the appliqued squares up close.
I bet neither of them would ever think their quilts would end up on the internet. 🙂
Now, we couldn’t find my Mom’s quilts. So instead I’m showing one of her appliqued wall hangings that she and my grandma used to make and sell in a little shop where they lived.
My grandma did one of these, and my mom did one. But since they didn’t ever sign anything, they can’t remember who did which. So here they both are.
