I take my hat off to you grandma Anne.
I love this quilt, with its simple pink and white color pallet, and staggering design. I believe it was a work of love, and certainly dedication.
I have often wondered if some of the patterns of these quilts, paid homage to the families involvement with the Women's Christian Temperance Union, of which several members were active participants?! If these quilts were made for other than family use, however, we have no record.
Sadly, we are left with only the quilts themselves, and they aren't talking. How nice it would have been, if Anne had taken the time, to record her thoughts on these quilts. I am very glad at least, that she put her laundry mark on them.
