But here is what I know about these quilts.....
These two rail fences were pieced by my great grandmother Lindig and given to my Mom for her high school graduation. I added borders and tied them a few years ago so I could use them on these beds that I got from my other Granparent's home.
This red and white quilt was made by my Grandmother Marshall. She and her sisters made mostly utility quilts, this one is one of the few that looks like it was made from new fabric. Its got a very thick batting and is hand quilted in a baptist fan. The blue and white quilt under it is my very first quilt...there isn't a real binding on it and the polyester batting sometimes beards through but I still like it.
My great grandmother Hamm and possibly my Grandmother Lindig made this for my Mom when she was a baby. It has different nursery rhymes embroidered into the squares and is super sweet.
My Grandmother Marshall gave this scrap quilt to my Mom and Dad when they were married in 1965. We had two and nothing made you feel better when you had a cold than to lay on the couch under one of these with our big Siamese Thai on top.
And my Great Aunt Wilma Lindig made this quilt probably with her mother. I haven't seen this pattern before although Fannye once told me she thought it was called 7 sisters. Uncle Lee and Aunt Wilma never had children and really spoiled us when we were little, I love that he decided to give us each a quilt when she passed away.
