I know some of you who read this blog know that I am an obsessed quilter and have been for over 35 years. I love anything and everything about quilts and do have some lovely old things that I treasure. Back in the 1930's, it was quite a common practice for newspapers to publish the patterns for quilts by doing it a block a week. This came from the Peoria Journal Star and the blocks were embroidered by my husband's mother, Clemie, and I believe the blocks were made into a quilt and quilted by Ray's grandmother on his father's side.
A hoot owl sits on a branch in this block and
a pretty blue bird sits on a branch with blossoms. It is a very pale quilt but pretty regardless.
Here is a shot of the quilting which is very nice and even. The colors are quite true in the picture. A very lovely "piece of the past" I am happy to share with you. (Click to enlarge)
