The History Of...

The History Of...

Do you ever wonder about the history of items passed down from one generation to another?  What was the story behind the item?  What kinds of memories were shared with it?  Who made it?  The list goes on...

The Quilt in these photos belonged to my Grandmother...and sadly that’s all I know about it...however I wish I knew more...  

Did she make it?  Were the little fabric squares made from old clothing?  Did it hold any sentimental value?  Did she take it on picnics?  Did she read her kids stories while snuggled in it?  So many questions...

I’m going to reach out to my extended family and see if they can share some history about it.  Even though it is in very rough shape, we love and cherish it so much.  

I know Abby shares the same affinity I do, for learning about the history of people and their belongings.  So going forward...I’ll continue to document things for future generations...just in case they care to know.  

Do you like to know the history of things too?  We can’t be the only ones...
