Quilts and Family Heritage

I'm in Canada now, visiting my parents and family. Before I left, my mom called and asked me to take a photo of a quilt my grandmother had made to give me for my wedding, many years ago.

The quilt is a Dresden quilt pattern, and many of the fabrics used were from my childhood clothing. Apparently, my grandmother Koehler cut out two sets of everything, and my mom just found the second set. So now, she (mom) wants to look at how grandma put everything together.

These family treasures will stay with us forever.

I love that quilt, and the story that went behind it. Dresden plates are one of my very favorite quilt patterns. I love that way that she stitched her name into the quilt. What a precious gift!
