I had another of my Granny's hand-stitched quilt tops come my way--and I'm going to set about reclaiming it.
It needs some work. . .
I've stared at this one for a bit. Honestly, I've wondered if my own Granny pulled it off. This level of steady patterning doesn't really show up in most of her other quilts. But these hand stitches--in whatever color thread she had around . . .
. . . and the itty bitty seam allowances (she was a fan of the Barely 1/4" seam allowance...looks like 1/8 in spots) make it clearly hers.
P.S. Thanks for all your great responses of interest in my current writing project. I'm typing my fingers off over here--will share more as it comes to life. :)
