I have been quilting for about 8 years. As I started getting more interested in quilts, quilt patterns and where they originated, my husband mentioned to me that his great grandmother was a quilter. Surprise! I had no idea. I know my mother quilts, her mother quilts, and her grandmother quilted. I even have a “Sunbonnet Sue” quilt square, (The quilt had been cut into squares. Cringe!) from my great grandmother that was passed down to my mother, who then finished the edges and gave a square to each of her daughters. Lucky me! It is pictured here.
I have a picture of Great Grandma standing next to this quilt, but when I called to ask permission to use it, she didn’t want me to. I’ll just have to keep that picture in the family archives. I’m so happy I got to find out a little more about my husbands family history through quilting.
