I said I would post some pictures of my Grandma’s sailboat quilt so here goes. This was a friendship quilt that her and her friends worked on before she moved from Stewardson, IL to Frankfort, IN. My Grandpa worked for the RR and they moved around a lot. One of the blocks has the year 1932 embroidered on it. She made many sailboat quilts over the years, I am sure using those same cardboard templates that I used. The remainder of sailboat quilts that I have seen from her ( I have another myself) have all been tied and not quilted. I feel so blessed to have a quilt that my Grandma made.
I want to thank everyone who comments. Those comments make my day and I thank you for taking the time to do so. With that said, I have to be the worst when it comes to leaving comments. Let me explain myself. We live very rural and at this time have no other options then dial up. You can’t imagine how long it takes for a blog page to load. I decided a long time ago that I want to visit each and everyone of your blog’s regularly. In order to do so I have to spend my computer time reading instead of commenting. It takes too long for the comments page to load. So that is my excuse and I am sticking to it! Do know that even if I don’t leave a comment I am out there surfing around gaining inspiration from each and everyone of you!
