I've always had a love for and fascination of old quilts, too. My mother has a red and white quilt that my great grandmother made many, many years ago. The red has faded to a rosy pink, but I think that gives it even more character. My mom recently made a quilt for my daughter and is now working on one for my son. Hopefully, they will become heirlooms for their families some day!

Heidi, I was so tickled to see this post. The same topic has been on my mind as of late. I love seeing old quilts and wondering about all of the hands that have touched them throughout their lives.

And like you, I have fond memories of a quilt that was made by one of my relatives. It's a blue and white pattern (sorry, don't know it) that was hand-pieced and hand-quilted by my great great (great?) grandmother. It has always hung in my mother's living room, and I hope one day it will hang in mine.

Right now I'm working out some ideas for repurposing old quilts that are too beat up for using on beds. I'll let you know what I come up with!
