great grandmother annie's quilts
my mother had this treasure trove of quilts and quilt tops made by her grandmother. i photographed it this summer and my sister and i divided them between us. i'm using several of the quilts around the house. the tops are tucked carefully away in a cupboard, but i get them out occasionally and look at them, pondering what to do. one is in bad shape in some spots (the mice got to it at one point over the years) and i think about whether to cut it into smaller pieces and make pillows and tea cozies and such, but so far, i don't dare.
