Inspired

3 Nov

by “Elm Creek Quilts” the book series by Jennifer Chiaverini

I photographed each quilt from my stash.

These were gifts from paternal great grandmother as well both paternal and maternal grandmothers.

This thimble collection is a great pairing with personal quilt collection. It is is combination of utilitarian, simply pretty, souvenirs, even local election thimble “give-aways”. I found Mom’s silver thimble. ūüôā
