History In A Quilt

The above are some of the very fine examples of hand made quilts that were displayed or entered in contest for the Best Quilt at the Houston Rodeo and Livestock Show back in Febuary of this year . In some families , a hand made quilt will be passed down through several generations . They are made with love and great care . Some are so intricate , that they may take years to plan , plot the patterns, and the sew .

That quilt with the hearts is sure purty! I have a quilt that my grandmother made for me. I think it took her quite a few year. It is totally stitched by hand and is large enough to cover a king sized bed. Thank you for posting this.
