More of Grandpa’s Treasures

MooseQuilts
After going back to my Grandpa’s house a couple more times, I have no more guilt (see  http://moosequilts.blogspot.com/2013/09/family-heirlooms.html) about keeping the quilts that I have. There were more than enough quilts to go around. I found enough that each of my children have a quilt and then found one more. I gave it to my sister. My sister loves red. This quilt has a red backing and is tied in red yarn.
 
 
It is big. It is also newer than the others which I have yet to take photos of.

 
I love this quilt! Isn’t it fun to see how great just squares look!

 
Problem is, I don’t know who made the quilt. It doesn’t look like the quilts I know were made by the great grandmother who I knew. It may have been made by another great grandmother who I did not know. My aunts told me she sewed clothes for people and may have made quilts from the scraps. This quilt looks like clothing scraps to me. But it could easily have been given as a gift by someone I don’t know. Another case for labeling quilts!

    I only just started labelling quilts. It’s a good idea. I saw an early quilt that I (supposedly) made but only vaguely remember it! Glad my sib remembered!

    Oh, I love this quilt! This is definitely a “Nita” quilt, lol! I have a couple of antique quilts with uncertain origin, too. At least they are still being loved, though, and they came into the family as gifts.
