This quilt comes from Michigan. This is where my Dad's family is from. His Great Aunt lived in Pontiac MI - and owned the Birmingham house... perhaps if you are from that area you have heard of it? There is quite a history - but anyways - when we visited - this quilt was given to my Mom. A. LONG. TIME. AGO. but we won't go into details...
This quilt was from a kit and was probably made around the 1940's
How do we know it was from a kit?
THERE IS A LABEL!!
It was hand quilted by my Great Aunt
and if you look close - there are still little pencil marks.
The border quilting - it echo's the blocks in the center.
I don't think I realized that the first time my Mom and I examined it...
Now I'll have to show her.... I might even impress her!
I feel very privileged to have this quilt from my Dad's side and this one from my Mom's
There are times I wish I had one room just for them.... but then we would have had to wait longer to move in to this house, and if you all know me well - you know patience is NOT in my DNA!
