Family Quilts

I'm beginning to gather photos of family quilts; there aren't many surviving quilts and I'd like to document what we know (or think we know!) about those we do have.

Quilting friends know that 1930s repro fabrics are not my favorites to use in quilts, but I appreciate and admire quilts made with the fabrics, especially those made in the 1930s, from feed sacks. And, if the quilt was made by my grandmother, well...then I love it. Here's a star quilt made by Grandma Susie, my mother's mother.
