Happy Valentines!

Years ago I received a beautiful gift that I treasure and love to display in my home.


Coming from a family of quilters my mother had a closet full of old quilts that were too worn out to use yet she couldn’t seem to throw them away because they were made by the loving hands of her Grandma Emma. My mother wanted to share Grandma Emma’s quilting with all of her kids so she simply cut out hearts out of the ragged quilts and placed them in frames. Now Emma’s quilts and memories can live on for a little longer. I am also reminded of true love of family.


What have you done old quilts that you can’t use anymore?
