Grandmothers Quilts

In celebration of warmer weather this week, I started displaying this antique quilt made by my Grandmother and my husband Tom,'s Great Grandmother with a Grandmothers Flower Garden quilt..  The iris quilt is in a very worn condition and is very thin, but there is some cotton batting in it.  It was larger, my Mom had cut away the torn and worn parts and put the yellow binding on it.  The Flower Garden quilt is in perfect condition.

I have always loved this purple iris. 

Look at her little stitches and that she changed thread color.  I feel very fortunate to have this quilt.  I don't know how old it is, my Grandmother passed away in 1967 at age 75.I don't know when she made it but she would be 123 years old now.
