Snipper Inspiration - Crazy (Beautiful) Quilt


This quilt belonged to my grandmother, but it's origin is unknown.  She may have purchased it at a flee market.  Curious, I opened it out the other day and was blown away.


Every seam is decorated with hand stitching


This black one reminds me of Queen Ann's Lace


Betcha all of these stitches have a name.


Each one is unique, almost like a sampler.  I wonder how long it took to make.  Hours? Months? Years?


Notice the different colors.  Suppose they were sewed by candle?  Lantern?  Light bulb?


I love the whimsy.


The sweetness.

I would like to meet the person that sewed this quilt.


She was a creative soul.
