OLDEN ROSES- A special quilt


My Spring covering for our
spare room bed...

This quilt was made by my 
Grand-mere and 
appliqued and embroidered
by my Mom and her sister...

Here are the three embroidered colorways...


I just love the feel of this
well-loved quilt...

Grand-mere did the Baptist Fan quilting
on her chair frame...

Can you see the Baptist Fan quilting???

One of my two treasured old quilts
from my Grand-mere...
I had this on my twin bed
while I was growing up...

The colors have stayed pretty bright...
despite many many washings...

I love taking this out and airing it and 
seeing it as I walk by 
the room...๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’

  1. This reminds me of the quilts both of my grandma's used to make. Alas my paternal grandma's quilts were all lost in a house fire, and I don't know what happened to most of the ones my maternal grandma made. I have two but wish I had more.

  2. What a beautiful quilt. You’re right, it’s a treasure for sure!!

  3. What a precious family treasure to have!

  4. What a beautiful quilt. How wonderful that you can still use it, enjoy it and appreciate it.

  5. Julierose, what an absolute treasure! Thanks for sharing.

  6. Such a beautiful quilt. No wonder a peek at it makes you smile. A treasure for sure.love baptist fan quilting

  7. How lovely to have this beautiful family quilt, certainly something to love and treasure, and remember those who worked on it.

  8. That's beautiful, Julierose! It's wonderful that you've had it so long, and can still use it, too.

  9. What a special treasure, Julierose. I see where you get your wonderful handwork skills.

  10. Belated Happy Birthday and also good luck with the "no buy" plan. I say something like that every month, LOL. Meanwhile, I enjoyed seeing your mindless stitching. And what an absolute treasure you have here with this quilt! Thank you for featuring it and showing aspects of the quilting. How beautiful!

  11. What wonderful memories stitched up in your lovely quilt!

  12. What a beautiful family treasure! You've taken such great care of it.

  13. Goodness such a very special quilt you have Julierose, it's beautiful.

  14. You have a real treasure there Julierose, the quilt is beautiful.

  15. What a special heirloom. Interesting that you come from a family of quilters and lovely that you have a dated quilt and its story.

  16. Pretty quilt and great memories.

  17. This is a treasure of a quilt and so wonderful it's still in such good condition. I love the pattern and I especially love that Nile green that we can barely find these days. It just speaks of the 1940s and 1950s. And look at the applique stitches. Lucky you to have it!

  18. What a delight. Clever you to continue to use it and keep it bright. Thanks for sharing this beauty.

  19. Such a beautiful quilt with beautiful memories of your Grand-mere, mother and sister. Such a treasure! I can only imagine how beautiful and soft it is to touch. I love that you use it. Old quilts have the loveliest feel. May you have many more years to look upon this lovely quilt and think upon all those treasured memories of your dear loved ones.
