Preserving a Piece of History...
From the close up picture, you can see how badly worn much of the quilt was, but I found a section that was intact enough to frame. I just bought an inexpensive framed canvas art piece at the local discount store and used that as a frame to wrap and staple the quilt around. Now it is hanging on our newly painted wall.
I love that the framed piece of my grandmother's quilt hangs on our wall just feet away from the beautiful quilt our daughters created much more recently. Women, separated by 3 generations and 90 years, but sharing the gift of creativity and love of family!
