Grandma's Quilts

Any of you out there who are grandparents will understand the great day I am having.  I got to pick my grandson up for a weekend visit.  He had school today so  I was able to pick him up there and go to their awards ceremony.  I got to see my grandson recieve a Citizenship Award and an Honor Roll Award.

It's a three-hour ride home.  We talked, sang songs, stopped for something to eat and practiced math problems in the car.  When we got home he visited with his grandpa, played with our dog, had a snack and we played Legos.

I not only love quilts  and quilting------I also love studying the history of quilts and quilting. 

We often think only about the fabric used in quilting.  We all know that quilts used to be made out of the "good parts" of worn out clothing.  Now we buy fabric for our quilts and work out a color scheme to suite our taste and decor.  We can even buy reproduction fabrics to make our new quilts look like they are old quilts!
