quilts of my ancestors

the three quilts to the right are quilts made by women in my family, both maternal & paternal relatives. i'm so in awe of how the years treat quilts when they are cared for. these are in my mother's home. she lent them for the women's retreat i led back in january in Mississippi. i'm so thankful to have been surrounded by so many beautiful colors with fabrics that were resourced well. we think the quilt you see with the green was made from flour or tea sacks from my great-grandmother's store. how wonderful are the works of your hands!
