I didn't make this...but I own it....



My husband's Grandmother, Florence Keith, made this. The best I can figure it out, it was made in the 40's. She left it to me when she died. I love it! Just thought I'd share a peek with you all!



It's really beautiful with scalloped edges and all hand done. It's a really big deal to me that she left it to me. She also left me her old trundle (sp?) sewing machine. I'll make a post about that too one day.....
Well...time for some sewing....

Is it a quilt, or table runner?

Hi! I love the quilt your DH's grandma left to you; it was made from a kit in the 40's probably. You can check eBay to see more of them - they came in a couple of different color choices, I think.

Beautiful quilt, and such sweet memories of Grandma. :-)

PS And the sewing machine is a *treadle*. Oh, and when I said the quilt was made from a kit in the 40's probably - the 'probably' refers to the 40's, as it was definitely made from a kit. :-)

That's very pretty. Ir reminds me of something my Grandma had on her table but hers was embroidered.
