I went to visit my mom last weekend for her birthday (I won't mention any numbers - mostly because if I do I won't live to see my next birthday - hehehe). While I was there my mom's friend Penny brought by a couple of quilts that were given to her.
My pictures do NOT do this quilt justice. The yo-yo's were all hand made and hand sewn together. It is at least king size (bed shown is a queen) and it is heavy! I think the blue, brown and white are polyester blends.
You really need to see this one in person...SOOO pretty.
Penny also brought this apple core quilt. Again all hand pieced. Penny wanted to know how to finish it. It has lots of gathering to fit the apple cores together, I don't think it would be possible to quilt it...maybe tie it. I recommend leaving it as is, giving it a nice press then drapping it on a quilt rack or chair back.
I was trying to figure out if some of the fabrics were feed sacks. There were some very cute prints in it.
My mom got out a couple of quilts that my great aunts had made. This was the last quilt my aunt Edith made. It is hand quilted.
She just randomly put the blocks together. LOVE all the half square triangles.
We couldn't remember which of my dad's aunts made this hexagon quilt.
I think my grandmother paid $50 for the quilt about 35 years ago.
