On Sat Sue, her mother in law, and I went to Brookings to take some quilts to be documented. It was the 3rd SD Quilt Documentation Day. The SD Quilt documentation project is a statewide effort to record quilts in SD that were completed before 1970.
The pink one is mine. The block is called a T block. The fabric in the T dates from 1880 to 1910! The quilt was probably finished between 1930 to 1950 because of the other fabric used to finish it dated in those years.
The wedding ring quilt was at my Aunt Norma's apartment. We found it after she passed away when we were cleaning out the apartment. I am not sure but Grandma must have made it. The gal that was doing the documenting said that the fabrics dated from the 1800s to 1940, that it was in very good condition and that it was hand quilted by more than one person.
Norma gave me the quilt top and I finished it in the 90s so they didn't document it. I hand quilted it and it might be my favorite of the 3:)
The next 3 belong to Sue's MIL. The one above is a postage stamp quilt. Every block even the white squares are made up of 1 inch squares (finished) Wow as you can see it wasn't a small quilt. That's alot of 1 inch squares 1000s of squares. The picture doesn't do it justice.

Here's what I have rounded up so far for my give away. Pillowcase, notepad, 3 spools of thread, a few beef promotion items (gotta get them in there every chance I get) and a secondary market tote. I call it secondary because it was first a sack of mineral for our cattle. Then when it's empty I wash it and cut it, sew it and snap it's a bag for your groceries, or anything else you need to tote around:)
Happy hopping ................JMF click on the link below, or click on the blog hop box to the right of this post. I was tired when I posted this last night, but just leave me a comment and you will be in the running for the prize:)
