This quilt wasn't made by a family member, but I'm going to write about it anyway.
Mom and Grandma were at an estate sale a couple of years ago and this quilt had been thrown onto the concrete floor. Grandma bought a piece of furniture and the seller used it as packing material when he loaded it into her car.
As awful as that is, it's found a good home with my mother. It's all hand applique and quilting and those 30s prints are still vivid and pretty.
It makes me wonder. Our quilts have been worn to shreds. This one is in pretty good shape for its age -- does that mean that it was safely tucked away for most of its life?
