My Favorite 100 Year Old Quilt Made By Great Grandmother
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.
