Aunt Flossie's quilt

This is one of the first quilt tops that I quilted. The top was made by my mother's Aunt Flossie Watkins. I hand quilted it in Aunt Flossie's quilt frames in the dining room of our big house on Simcoe Street.  It was made from scraps of fabric from my mother's sewing basket. She used every tiny bit of fabric she could. If a piece was not big enough to make a log, she pieced one together. Thrifty! I recognise some of the fabrics from different projects around the house. I have a picture somewhere of my younger sister wearing a dress made out of the polka dot fabric.
