An Inherited Bedspread



My mother passed this heirloom on to me a few months ago. It was crocheted a long time ago by her aunt.

It spent some time folded over a chair, but it occurred to me today that it would look lovely spread on Giles' bed now that he's gone again. I'm hoping that spring will bring me some company for my guest room!

Reminds me of the tatted bedspread from my great grandma...I just don't have the courage to use it with eight children!

White on white beds are the bees knees! For a time, Ralph Lauren's site had a bit about mixing vintage white linens. This is perfection!

It's beautiful! I can't imagine crocheting an entire bedspread, it must have taken forever! It's really lovely.

It is absolutely lovely! I do so love old things...with a bit of history!

I have one very similar that my great aunt crocheted, too! Except I don't have a bed to put it on and I'd be afraid to use it! =)

It is beautiful. I have two of them - one from each of my grandmothers. They are a treasured legacy.

Hey, Anna, if you're looking for guests, I can think of some that would be happy to oblige...Anything to help, you know!

I have this exact same bed frame! How did you attach it to your bed? Mine doesn't attach to a modern bed frame.

Hoping for guests? Just let me know when you're ready for us! =)

Beautiful spread.

That is so lovely--I only wished you had shared a larger 'swatch' of it with us!

Beautiful! I want to tackle a project like that soon. I used to think such things were "ugh" but now that I have learned to crochet, I so much better appreciate the skill and time it takes. I'm in the mist of crocheting lace curtains for a window of unknown as of yet. :O)

I'm so glad you can spread your treasure out and enjoy the labor of love.
