I’m lucky enough to own two quilts made by my great-grandmother. Although she died when I was very young, I remember playing for hours with the doll clothes she stitched by hand for my mother when she was a child. My mother can point to the fabric scraps in the quilts and remember a dress or doll clothes that her grandmother made out of the same fabric. One of my quilts hangs across the back of my family room sofa and the other lives in our front living room.
I love them both but this crazy quilt pattern is my favorite.
And look at the back!
If they could pry it from my hands, it would be so cute in one of the boys’ rooms. Quilts are always at home in kid’s spaces, but they can lend a feeling of coziness and texture to any room, even more modern interiors.
