I actually am the proud owner of an antique red and white quilt that I thought I would show you all today. Here it is in all of it's humble glory.........

It has been very loved and I LOVE that! When I first
Hand quilted and, I believe, hand pieced, it is a true treasure to me. I'm glad that I could keep alive someone's handwork many years later, be it so humble or not. Most of the time it lives folded up inside my mother's old picnic basket on top of my quilt cupboard reminding me that things don't have to be complicated to be lovely!
Do you have a red and white quilt?
