Last week’s Quirky Question
was, “What’s the best thing you’ve ever stitched…for yourself?” Here’s the winning comment, from Mary:

“The best thing I ever made for myself is a ‘Sister’s Quilt.’  Having two sisters who quilt, we are always ‘giving’ things away and not to each other. Several years ago we started making sister quilts that are just alike whenever we get together. (We all live very far apart.) When we need to re-feel the warmth of that meeting time, we could wrap up in one or all of the quilts. Guess what—these quilts manage to stay in our respective homes and not be given away.”

Congratulations, Mary—look for an email about your free eBook.

Aunt Amy's Sampler Quilt

Aunt Amy's Sampler Quilt. A 21-year old Amy stitched this quilt, dated 1898. Some blocks are beautifully pieced, while others are haphazardly sewn, suggesting that she had learned to piece different blocks over the years and then sewed them together in 1898. The quilts featured in the book are based on some of the blocks in Amy's sampler.
