My husband's Aunt recently sent me a photo of her latest quilt. In her words:
The crocheted pieces were made by my great Aunts in Italy about 80 odd years ago as they use to send a bedspread out to my Grandparents with a crocheted edge around it and as the bedspreads had worn out the crochet was taken off and given to Mother. She never got around to doing anything with it and so when Papa cleaned out her sewing room I got it and have had it for about 14 years and have just used it. I got serviettes with the apricot design on so incorporated them with the crochet and so I used apricot behind to bring it all together. I am quite pleased with the affect and so the spare bed now has a new spread.
Beautiful work Rosina. We will have to come and visit one day and see all these wonderful quilts in person. xxx
