The quilt and Christening gown both are so beautiful...how lucky to own such treasures! This is (exactly) the reason I myself make heirloom baby, child, and doll clothes and I've started making quilts in the last year.

What BEAUTIFUL heirloom items you have. I especially like the Christening gown! I just stumbled across your website, and have enjoyed my visit here. :)


Lovely quilt on you page
Have a nice and creative weekend
Quilting hugs from Norway:-))


How wonderful that you have these family treasures in your home! It is wonderful to feel connected to our past. I feel connected to woman throughout history when I pick up a needle. What an incredible bedspread that is to think of all the love that went into stitching it.

It is good to be back blogging. My mother and online friends are all back home or will be as two are still on their way today after staying a night with one of the others. I am exhausted as I had to stop taking my pain medication for my chronic illness which I took while they were here. I few days of rest with my stitching and a good book will fix that in no time. It is nice to catch up with blogging friends once again.

Hugs ~


The quilt is marvellous. I love Hexagonquilts.

You're so lucky to own such wonderful treasures. I've got all my grandmothers china, holds special memories of me having afternoon tea with all the ladies when I was about 4. I'm sure I've got other treasures too, I'll have to do a hunt this weekend.


Well done Jo. Quilt and Christening gown look beautiful.

That hexagon quilt is just gorgeous, what a wonderful treasure.


Your blog is charming! I followed a link from Stina's blog in Sweden. We have all become world travelers!

What a pretty quilt. It reminds be of precious gems found in a stone. Quilting and passing the quilt down IS a precious gem all on its own!!

What a special quilt for you to have Jo!!


love all these treasures..........the gown is my fav.......


Jo, That Christening gown is amazing and yes I think you are right...patience must have been the key to such a divine outcome. Simply stunning. Jo
