New Opportunities.....

"Each of us can ask ourselves each morning, What can I do to make life happier for someone today."  Keeping this thought in mind, I know what a difference it makes for me when someone greets me with a is the universal language and warms my heart.

Here are a few more quilts from the museum.  The five alternate blocks are a cross stitch design in this quilt.

And they are beautifully set off with the pink star.

As well as enjoying the quilts, I love reading the history about them.  This story causes me sadness to think about the difficult time many farmers had, and perhaps still do today.

I have always been drawn to this design.

I find vintage type quilts so appealing, especially this one which is hand quilted.

I forgot to get the information on the stunning quilt......the quilting is absolutely fabulous!

What a treat it was to look closely at this amazing quilt.

One more gorgeous quilt for today.  I've always loved two colored quilts

I kind of believe the red and tan quilt above was also a quilt that Megan to rescued.  She does an amazing job of honoring quilters work and legacy.

More tomorrow.  :-)


  1. Love the movement in that red & tan quilt. Stunning!!!

  2. Beautiful! I love yellow and white quilts lately. I have a few antique quilts I have collected over the years... How many stitches do you think we're in the first? The stitches are amazingly tiny!
