Even though I'm made of feedsacks And I'm tattered, old, and torn You treasure me---you love me You wrap yourself up in me, And I surround you with my warmth. I am your greatgrandma's arms and welcoming smile I envelope you in my hug I love you too.
I have always loved quilts, ever since I was small enough to stand up under Greatgrandma's quilt frame as she, my grandma, and great aunts quilted. I loved to study the feedsack fabrics that Greatgrandma used to piece her quilt tops. It was so rewarding to find two pieces that matched, but that didn't always happen! I love scrap quilts to this very day, and make sure that there's at least one patch that doesn't have a match in my own scrap quilts. I treasure Greatgrandma's Double Wedding Ring Quilt, which I was lucky enough to be the recipient of after much begging. Be sure to read the story of my quilt and other posts.
