My Granny Quilt

Most of you have seen my ‘Granny Fan’ button on my side bar. My friend Valorie, from Life’s Little Garden often shows us her visits to her Granny’s house, and we have all fallen in love with her, and her love of quilting, but especially, her love of the Lord.

Granny has really been sewing up a storm in the past few months, but especially since she got her ‘new’ Singer 401A. Click HERE to see her in action!

The sewing machine in the following picture is her old Domestic machine. She had it for many years, and for a long time, had been making one quilt a week with it. She wore it out.                             granny button                                             This is her ‘new’ sewing machine (new in the 50’s). Since Valerie has started helping Granny sells her quilts, and since she got this machine, she has been making TWO quilts a week. I think that is fantastic for a 96 year old woman, don’t you? granny 021                                  Here is the quilt I bought from Granny. It arrived today, and it is WONDERFUL!  It is so soft, fluffy and warm! I know I will spend many an evening covered up with it in my chair (and sleeping!) Thank you so much Granny! I love it, and I will think of you each time I cover up with it. Granny Thrift store 2 004

Be blessed,

I also enjoy Valerie's posts about visiting Granny. Remarkable that she is in her 90's and still quilting at such a high speed.

The new layout is so cute.

Enjoy the weekend with your honey Louie.

I hope I'm half as active as Granny when I'm her age. She puts me to shame.
Enjoy cuddling under that lovely quilt.

Love and hugs Gina xxx
