Small quilts made from old scraps

A friend gave my mom an old quilt that was in tatters and Mom made several small quilts from it.  Mom looked the fabrics up in a reference book and read that they are indigo pieces from the 1840's-50's.

I love this scrolling pattern.

The quilt was quilted with blue thread.  Here's the back.

Mom created this one from some old blocks.

Here's a close up.  I LOVE the one in the middle.

Another close up.


Here's what I'm cooking my family for dinner.  I hope they like it!


  1. I love what your mom did with the remnants of the old quilt. Your oven contents remind me of mine! I often have little doll heads baking in mine, too.

  2. They are all beautiful. Especially the indigo fabrics and pattern. It is really worthwhile preserving a little bit of history. Looking forward to seeing how that doll looks when she is finished.

  3. OMG!!! They will love it!!!!! Not sure how full theyre going to get tho. Hehe its funny though, especially back in the day when we all used cinnamon and nutmeg, and it smelled like we were making yummy sweet rolls? Silly kids?...
    Hehe Hugs,
