Quilt Party !!

I have this saying hanging in our house
so true
our lives are like that of a quilt
Pieced together with love
one piece at a time

Quilt Project Button

 This Quilt is a very old one was made by my mother many years ago as she has been gone
for 28 years and it was made long before that but is still together
Amazing that those little stitches still holding together .
I would love to know the name of this pattern , If anyone knows the name for it I would appreciate it .
As I reminisced on this quilt I saw dresses that had been worn by me , handkerchiefs of my dads. Mother did the back in a plaid color as you will see in the picture
As I stood there looking at this quilt and thinking of all the love that went into making this and the care she took with each stitch I could feel this.
 as she made this I just know she was singing as she always sang with all her working in the house I could here those songs and feel the love while standing looking at the quilt
                                    This quilt has keep how many family members warm on a cold winters night ?

                              This quilt was given to me by  my sister in laws mother she made this a few
                               years back all the pieces she  has stitched
                               I have keep this folded over the end of one of our beds
                                 I think that this one has been quilted on a machine by looking
                                 at the stitches

                                     This is a quilt piece my mother was working on
                                     before she passed away she had just enough pieces of the pattern
                                     made, that my sister in law Nancy had each of us a pillow made
                                     This  is my most treasured quilt piece it may have never been finished as a quilt
                                      I feel the love that was going into it as the first quilt I showed
                                      I know those stitches  were stitched with lots of love and just holding
                                      it close I feel that love ...........................

  2. glenna,

    I don't know if you knew my topic today was spiritual gifts, but if not this post "hits the nail on the head."

    What an awesome spiritual gift!!! Using your hands to make a beautiful quilt that will go to keep someone else warm. That is service!!! That is giving!!!

    Thank you for linking up. I hope you are doing well.

  3. By the way, make sure you link this post up to the linky tool at the bottom of my post today, so others can see the beautiful work of your mothers hand.

  4. I love your fan quilt! My grandmother made one of those for me, and it is a real treasure.

  5. Glenna, what a great quilt post! I love all of your quilts (and the pillow; what a neat idea). That first quilt is so unique. I love how the shapes intertwine, and I love the backing. Quilts speak of warmth and love, and the stories that go with them are memories of the greatest kind.

    I'm so glad you shared this with us today.

  6. Happy to share your quilts with you! That last, unfinished quilt touches my heart. My mother didn't quilt, but my grandmother did. I have a collection of bits and pieces, unfinished, from her quilts which someday I will make into a finished project.
