Flower basket quilt

Lovely Flower Baskets in the Windows
August 2013

In some of the fabric that came from my Mom’s stuff, were these cute hand-embroidered 9″x9″ squares (shown in detail in lower right corner). I would guess that they are vintage 1940’s – 1950’s, and it is curious as to who originally made them, and wonder what their plan was for them. I can’t imagine the time (and patience) involved to hand-embroider so many of the same squares! I donated this quilt to the County of Ventura, Children & Family Services, in October 2013.
