This was a quilt that was on my bed when I was a little girl. Since I was feeling down and out, I decided to bring the quilt home and wrap up in it just to have a connection to my mother. For those of you who don't know, my mother died 3 years ago and her birthday is coming up July 6th. Needless to say, she has been on my mind lately. Anyway, back to the quilt. I have a queen size bed and this quilt just covers the top of the bed. It looks as though Mama made these blocks and pieced them with equal size blocks. What I love about this quilt is that it is not all matchy-matchy. She used what she had and even piece the "solid" blocks using what she had on hand.
Maybe my friend, Heidi, can tell us the name of this quilt block. It escapes me right now. I do know this quilt was most likely made in the late 1930s or the early 1940s.
