Over the weekend, David's sister Cindy gave us a vintage quilt that belonged
to their paternal grandmother. It's a lovely quilt and it pairs very well with
the pillow I made last year from a tea towel that Cindy found at a garage
sale, and some Ralph Lauren fabric and other scraps I had to create this
cottage style pillow.
I am not certain of the era of these fabrics, but I am guessing 1930's or perhaps
1940's. The stitching is tiny and perfect. A very pretty quilt in excellent
I wonder when Grandmother Freeman had time to make it since she raised five
boys and was the wife of an Army Colonel who was transferred to military bases
across the country.
I never had the opportunity to meet Henrietta as she and the Colonel
passed away before David and I were married. I hope she knows that
her quilt is loved and will be well cared for until it is handed down to
the next generation.
Family heirlooms give such warmth and uniqueness to a home.
Thanks for stopping by to see our new treasure.
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
