The Hand-Stitched Quilt

When one of our parishoners died last year, she left a lot of quilting stuff in her basement and we found this quilt top.

Here's a closeup of the stitches - it was hand stitched - I don't know when or by whom...

I added a few border strips to make it fit a twin sized sheet that we used for the backing.

We'll raffle this off in the fall as a child's quilt - the proceeds will go to Lutheran World Relief Quilt Project.


  1. what a neat find! i hope it goes to someone who knew her. love, k

  2. Me too! Some of her friends said they didn't think she pieced it - but because it is so old - I think she did - maybe for a daughter she never had - she had two sons - but this quilt would be perfect for a little girl...



  3. Looks like birds flying. Someone will treasure it. E
