The weekend


This weekend was great, but one of the best things was walking by the guest bedroom and seeing this crazy quilt. A big thank you to my aunt for the gift. My mom and aunt believe that my great-great Aunt Nell made it many moons ago. Unfortunately, I don't know too much about quilting, but it is 100 percent silk with the patchwork in blocks. The stitches may be a tacked herringbone stitch, but this is where I am way over my head. If you know anything, school me!

  1. I quilt, but I have no idea what I'm doing. Wish I had some info. It is really beautiful though!
