Aunt Margaret - Quilt #3

There's a cool story that goes along with this quilt from Aunt Margaret's collection. It is a Churn Dash made in red and tan. Here's the commentary that my aunt sent in her email.

I had a red & white 3/4 quilt on my bed that mom had made several years ago. It was stolen when our house was broken into 7 yrs ago. I didn't want to tell her I wanted a new one for my bed because I didn't want to tell her about the robbery. Anyway, as if she read my mind, she made this red & tan one which matches my bedroom colors exactly! Plus it was a queen size! I asked for it and she gave it to me about 6 yrs ago. It is on the bed every day and I love it!


Pretty nifty, huh?




I see that this quilt has been machine quilted which means I must have had a hand in it, but I honestly do not recall this quilt.

Stay tuned for one more quilt from Aunt Margaret's collection of Grandma's quilts.

Happy Quilting, Friends!

That's another beautiful quilt. I am really enjoying seeing this series, and hearing the stories behind them.
