This is my Grandmother on my Mother’s side of the family. She passed away in 2008 at the age of 95. The family thought that this Grandma only made two Cathedral Windows quilts, one for each of her daughters.
Imagine our surprise when two other quilts were found in her linen closet while cleaning out her home following her death.
We think possibly my Great-Aunt made them, but we don’t know. It’s possible that Grandma made one or both of them, but it’s a mystery. THAT’S WHY LABELS ARE SO IMPORTANT!
I inherited this Tulip one; my Mother has the appliquéd dogwood one (I’ll get of photo of hers and post it later). My Sis chose Grandma's beautiful crocheted bedspread that looks wonderful on the bed in her guest room.
I have quite a few vintage/antique quilts and tops in addition to the ones I’ve made over the last five or six years, so I rotate displays of my quilts reflecting the seasons. It’s time to go to the Spring ones—although it was wintery cold a couple of days ago. Grandma's Tulips will be one chosen for display for sure.
