My mother was 88 years old when she died. During her 80’s she pieced many simple quilt tops. It was her way of using time and relaxing herself when she couldn’t sleep at night. She would get up and tear strips of cloth or piece simple quilts. She enjoyed the work, but did not have the patience for bothering with intricate patterns.
I have two boxes filled with tops she pieced. Bit by bit, I’m quilting them. That entails adding batting and backing, quilting the three layers together, then making and stitching binding around the edges. Here are pictures of my latest of Momma’s simple quilt tops.
Thanks for looking!
