Fabulous Find

You will not believe what I found this morning. I was looking for something to put in the bottom of the Pack and Play to make it more comfortable for our little one and I found this quilt.

















The minute I saw it I remembered it. I am sure that my grandmother made it.

















I even went out and bought a camera so I could post these pictures. I left my good one at home.


















It is hand quilted in a very interesting pattern, I don't really know how to describe it.



















I am getting together with my female cousins tonight. We are all supposed to bring something and I am going to bring this quilt.


















The daughter of one of my cousins is studying textiles at NC State and she will be there. These fabrics will be very interesting for her to see.


















I even have a small piece of this same pink fabric.



















The blocks are absolutely amazing. It is a nine patch square in a square. It is beautiful and to think of the work my grandmother put into it means so much to me.

What a great find! It looks like it's in a very good condition too. How fun to have a textile student looking at it, she may have some valuable insights about the fabrics and pattern.
