Every quilt has a story...A few I have blogged about, such as Green Pastures and An Oasis in the Desert. I have lots of others that I haven't told the stories about, like my "Gettysburg trip remembrance quilt,"
and my virtual vacation quilt "Hawaiian Trip"
But I wonder about the story behind some of the old quilts that I have acquired... like the one from my Mother-in-law. It was nothing fancy, well worn and somewhat tattrered. I remember when we were cleaning out her place 18 years ago, getting it ready to sell. One of the sisters said "What about this? It can't be just thrown out out given to some second-hand store." None of the kids really knew the story of it, but it really did just look like a comfortable blanket that seemed to invite someone needing comfort and warmth. I took that quilt. And then one day I found a pattern for the perfect project to repurpose that quilt that still had so much love to give.
Do you have a special keepsake that could be transformed and made new? I would be more than happy to help!
