This is a quilt that I designed and made and that is now being re branded with the Timeless Traditions Quilt Logo. This quilt was made from the 30's reproduction fabrics, but also with many old feed sacks, vintage aprons etc. which I had purchased over the years at Antique stores. When my children were little, I used to pack up the suburban and travel from Utah to Minnesota. It was quite an adventure to say the least......My husband had a phone installed in the car for emergencies. I would put the seats all down and create a big play-sleep area and take off early in the wee hours of the morning, with the kids sleeping. Car seats and seat belts....no one used them at that time. Shame on me, but we all lived to tell the story. We listened to many Fisher Price children's tapes and had quite a merry time! We stopped often, including many antique shops. As the miles accumulated, so did the feed sacks. Over time they became more difficult to find. My children became quite good at finding them for me. They would be rewarded by looking for Dairy Queens for ice cream stops. Along with our feed sacks and other vintage fabric items, we have a treasure of precious memories. As the kids got older we would also stop at every historical item of interest along the way. One time we saw the Bridges Of Madison County. We traversed the back roads of Madison County, Iowa looking for covered bridges. I remember my son Ben worrying that we could get lost! He was the adult in this adventure!
I hope everyone had a wonderful week-end, and now I leave you with this quote. "Above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you, because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it". -Roald Dahl
