    Such a lovely story Pam, and I am so happy that I got to share in it about your time with your Aunt and the lovely quilt that you inherited from her. I always wished for a home sewn quilt all my life, so I am so happy that I am finally learning to make them. Bless your ❤️ heart!!

    I found a grandmother's flower garden quilt top at Goodwill in Oregon. I found they had it set for an edge but it had never been ironed out flat for that finish yet just folded and stored. No label but I plan to finish on my sweet 16. It has bits that don't match and others where they carefully snipped playing card faces into the flower. Anyway got quite a kick out of finding those details when pinned the layers together for when I do quilt it   up soon. Even though they hand made it in 30s. It is time to use a machine and get it done.

    Reminds me why we need to label our quilts. I like that you noted the quilt has 3 stories, yours, your aunt's and the makers.

    Lovely story. I had to pause the video too because I'm pretty good at crying along with others. I love that quilts have stories and I'm looking forward to hearing what other quilts have to say.

    Pam.  I loved this story.  Tears and all, they show us how  deep your feelings go. This is a great idea for a segment, I love stories about quilts.  And you two are going to be the best hosts.  Thanks.

    What a lovely story. I have posted a link to your channel to my Facebook group. I have nearly 5,000 quilters in my group. (I sell fabric on there and we share and chitchat…etc.) I think they will all love your videos.

    Awwww, loved your Quilt Story.  It reminded me of my favorite Aunt and how I always got to stay with her for a night or two during my summer vacations.  She didn't have quilts on her beds back then though.

    Love this series!!! How wonderful. I have two Grandmother's Flower Garden quilts made by 2 of my Aunts over 40 years ago. They are made with double knit material, because they had bags and bags of the stuff that they got somewhere, but they are still beautiful to me because every time I walk by the one on our sofa I see those hand stitches and I can see my Aunts sitting around their quilt frame stitching away and that means so much to me.

    Sweet story. Thanks for sharing. Beautiful quilt. Unfortunately, no one in my family quilted and I have never inherited or been gifted a quilt. So…. I make and give many away and have also kept a number of my own creations.

    You tell the best stories! A quilt IS a hug! It doesn’t matter who made the quilt. It matters that your Aunt gave it to you. Those are the threads ypthat connect us.
