lily and quilt

Lily wrapped in Grandma's dresses.

My mother-in-law stitched this quilt out of her old dresses when she was a young girl. We're not quite sure of the story, but we believe she and several friends would have pooled their dresses for more variety.

It's so 40s in it's colors--I just love it! Thanks to my sister-in-law, each sibling has a piece of this quilt to hang in their home. I haven't gotten around to that yet, but I do love to take it out and look at it every now and then.

I did take this photo yesterday, but wasn't feeling great last night so I postponed the posting of it until today!
