A few months ago, Mike's mom was going through some boxes and found his old baby quilt and gave it to him. I'm not sure what relative of his made it, but when we got home I really took a close look at it and what I discovered was remarkable.
It's a pretty heavy quilt too so I'm not sure what they have inside of it. Mike seems to think it's an old horsey quilt he had as a child, but again, with the pink on one side and blue on the other, I really believe this was made before he was born.
Now what truly amazed me, and maybe this is because I'm a sewist myself, is the detail in this simple quilt. And I use the term "simple" very loosely. You can tell by looking that this quilt was completely made by hand. Check out the detailing in this embroidery--it's PERFECT! Can you imagine how long it took? And was it done freehand or did they use some type of pattern?
