An 86 Year Old Quilt

Our miniature quilt group meeting this week was at Bobbi's house and she shared with us a beautiful Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt made in 1930.  It is in amazing shape for being 86 years old!  I believe she said it came to them through her husband's family and she is very happy to have it!

It is hand pieced and hand quilted and has been very well cared for.  The colors still even look fantastic!

And it has a label!  Notice too, how difficult that binding would have been to put on.

This is a large quilt too.  Bobbi had it laid out on a king sized bed and it covered the whole thing and draped over the sides a bit.  What a lovely family heirloom...
