When I went home last my grandmother showed me something. It was a quilt that her mom (my great grandmother had made). It was LOVELY!!
I liked the fabrics here.
And anything purple tickles my fancy!
Her points were spot on!
And here is a shot of the full quilt! I love the colors on the diagonal! I posted in a quilting group on facebook, and I was told this was called periwinkle or hummingbird. I did find a few similar patterns. I think once I am done with my bow tie quilt I am going to make my own periwinkle quilt. Granted mine will be slightly different than my great grandmas. Hers was all sewn by hand. I will be doing mine by machine.
I was so excited to find out my great grandma had made this because I am a first generation quilter. My mom sewed a little (I have clothes she made my sisters and I when we were younger). My grandma used her machine for mending, but that was the extent of it. To find a quilt that my great grandma made means the world to me. I guess there might have been more but when my grandma was younger there was a flood at their house and they lost a lot.
