OMG I am drooling...this is amazing and beautiful from someone who sounds like quite the role model for us all!! How cool.
True Thanks, Mary! My great grandmother was ahead of her time...she was quite a woman and I was lucky to know her before she passed :)
Love this story, too!! Was checking for a "moose" tag!?!
You are certainly fortunate to own something so special. It looks so beautifully made, Wendy. Now we are seeing where you fabulous skills come from. I bet you are like her in many ways .
You will definitely have to keep this under lock & key (i.e. Conni, Cathy and Mary). And look at that scrappy pieced inner border not to mention those plates!!! I am jealous.I don't know how you were able to snatch this away from Paula! I guess it was meant to be since you've had that picture of Fanny in her red hat...
Terryt1955 You are thinking of my Nana (which was Fanny's daughter) in the red hat :) Actually each of us got one of Fanny's quilts...so no snatching from each other was needed :) They are all beautiful!
LOL, leave it to me to mix up the generations! But I do remember you talking about Fanny after I mentioned the picture so that's what stuck. Quite the memorable character! Did you take pictures of the other quilts as well? I would love to see them.
When I first saw this I thought, "OMG when did turbo make this one". Your taste is very much like your great grandmothers. I love this. It is truly overwhelming how beautiful it really is and to think it is hand done. I can not wait to see in person and fondle it. I will bring white gloves.
I saw this the other day and wanted to let you know how beautiful it was, but I'm just now getting around to it.
You are so lucky to have such beautiful heirlooms to pass down through your family. I was not as fortunate and my Mother didn't hand any of my Grandmothers beautiful crafts down to me. You are truly blessed.
