I can't resist it anymore! This beautiful quilt has been sitting in my closet collecting oodles of dust, rather than looking beautiful on Violet's bed like it should be! This quilt was made by my husband's Great-Aunt-Frannie (love the name!) out of various shirts, eons ago! There was some concern that is was too old for use, had never been washed, may fade and all those concerns us folks have about old linens, that may need to be preserved. I have been festering over this for about a year and decided today that it needs to be used for its intended purpose, to look absolutely gorgeous on some little persons bed! I mean really...I am not doing anything special to preserve it. This quilt, in all its cheerful glory sits in a closet where it collects all the days unsettled dust...not the life intended for such a fine looking quilt! I feel much better now!
