My Favorite 100 Year Old Quilt Made By Great Grandmother

Amy Austin

I love most things vintage. Antique furniture, old cars, clothes and anything made from hand like beautiful quilts. Quilts simply amaze me. One reason is the sheer time and talent that it takes to make one, but also because I couldn’t even attempt it!   When my late grandmother, Ethel Priddy Utz, gave me a quilt that was made by her mother more than 100 years ago, I was so honored! As a young girl, I had always admired the many quilts that she had around her home. But this particular quilt was always my favorite. It was my grandmother’s favorite too.

If you enjoy and appreciate beautiful handmade items, especially quilts, then don’t miss this years’ 33rd Annual Quilters Guild of East Texas this today and Saturday at Harvey Convention Center in Tyler.

The show features over 200 beautiful quilts, 25 vendor booths, quilt-related demonstrations, as well as a “Bed Turning” to show off some of the older quilts.

A donation raffle quilt and a silent auction benefiting CASA for Kids of East Texas, Refuge of Light andSpirit of St. Louis Therapeutic Riding Center will also take place.

The show is 10am-5pm each day and tickets are $6.00 for adults.
