Sounds a bit silly but it will be a fun challenge, not only are we looking for fabrics but use some macro skills and show the texture of some fabrics as well… :-)
Not silly at all! Fun challenge, Ed :-).
The following pieced quilts were made by my grandmother. This crocheted afghan...we don't know and I'd love to. It's a very intricate pattern, beautiful colors and Not. Small. Someone put an amazing amount of work into it many years ago. Any crochet folks recognize the pattern? It looks to me like stitches on top of stitches.
The teddy bear toes belong to my first teddy bear. She's wearing an acrylic, machine knit sweater. What?!? That needs to be fixed and just got bumped up on my to-do list. Yeesh...
So we have warm wool quilts all over the house. They were made from scrap material and old worn out or outgrown garments. My mother can pick out several she recognizes.
They have soft flannel backs and I believe there are old wool blankets inside.
Frequently found with the requisite cat indention ;-).
If I had to guess I'd say this is the oldest one. The black is a pretty velvet and I'd love to know what the faded purple came from.
