An Appliqued Quilt of Unknown Origin


I took my mother this gorgeous quilt top to put together and quilt. It's sewn from flour sack fabrics, appliqued with hearts in the tiniest of hand-stitches.

Me: "Will you quilt this?"
Mother: "Oh, it's gorgeous. You didn't make it? Where did you get it?"
Me: "No idea. It just showed up in my stash."
Mother: "Did I give you this? I gave you this."
Me: "You did? Will you quilt it?"


Clara's got it on her dorm room bed. It's very nice.

That is a beautiful quilt and Clara is a very lucky girl to have something so comforting from home with her. Your conversation with your mother reminds me of my girls. I will compliment them on something in their homes, and they tell me I gave it to them. Funny what you forget. ;o)

Amen to what Karen said. I was just thinking that the conversation sounds like my mom, my sisters and I.
