and some of you commented about the sweet
Garandmothers' Garden quilt that we keep at the foot of the bed?
...and saw something that I didn't realize was even there...
there. in the lower right of the photo below, you can see the tears in the GG quilt top:
|can you see what's hidden underneath?|
turkey red & madder brown calico's peaking out between layers ~
|where are my scissors??????|
Ig ~ wanna help me a bit?
|Iggy seems to be left-handed.|
the GG top and reveal the much-older quilt underneath ~
snip by snip...
|careful there Iggy ~|
|such a helper.|
way cool ~
|right there, Ig ~ gently, gently.....|
...the photo below shows the older quilt's backing fabric...
a brown with red floral ~
how funny that the old faded fabric closely resembles the green/red floral on our new comfortor!
releasing so many memories with each snip...
|how old is this hidden quilt? who stitched it? why was it covered with another quilt?|
in the meantime, I'm daydreaming about the hands that stitched them so long ago.
