Cathy's Scarf Quilt

Today would have been my mother’s 76th birthday, so it seems appropriate to share a quilt made for my sister of  old scarves embroidered both by our mother and us girls.  Back in June I shared the quilt I made for my sister Susan from some of the old scarves.

I machine pieced this small wall hanging, 34 in X 34 in, somewhere around 2000.  Cathy hand quilted.

Here you can see some of the embroidered areas better.

Such a lovely idea. Simple, yet effective - and laden with memories. Priceless.

I love it! It reminds me of the quilts my grandmother made . . .

This touches my heart. I have many antique handkerchiefs and have used several to make a quilt for my granddaughter...including one from my mother. Passing down memories - holding on to the good things we remember - it helps when my heart hurts and longs to see mother again. blessings, marlene
