Our House and the Angel Quilt

Hi friends, this is a picture of our house taken in the spring of 04. Five years ago the dog woods trees looked really pretty and I took this picture mostly to show the trees. It is a nice picture so I thought I would show it to you guys

Below is the very special Angel Quilt. This quilt was made by a friend of mine, for her grandson.
This quilt was shown in the quilt show here in town in 98. There was a news paper article written about it. The quilt show was held in Oct. and Nov. 98. The next year she put it in the BIG quilt show in Kentucky that is held in April. In November she died of cancer.
This is one of the most beautiful quilts I have ever seen and I knew the maker!!!


She made that quilt out of 1 and a half squares. I don't remember who many there where now but it was in the thousands. It had been a cross stitch pattern and she had to get permission from the maker of the cross stitch pattern. The quilt took your breath away.

Again I thank-you so much for coming to read my blog. I love your friendship!!!
Please leave a comment and come again soon. Fern

  3. oh my gosh, I love dogwood trees. There are a couple in the woods behind my house, but that's it.
    I can't believe that quilt; it looks like it's a tapestry.

    In answer to your question, I think you have to go to your profile and click on the "manage blogs I'm following" and click the "add" button.

    I really don't use that, but just visit the blogs I like when I can. I've got way too many favorites!

    I hope this helps!

  6. That is an incredible quilt! What a lot of work went into that. I'm not sure I'd have the patience.
