Yeah...I had also read long time ago about family histories being told throughout the quilt. Itīs a shame when such lovely traditions start dying out...

There are all kinds of interesting stories about how quilts came about...how the quilters weave their family histories throughout the quilt. I read those stories a long time ago, but I remember one about the quilting done by ladies in the 'hollows' (hillbilly land) while their men folk brewed their sunshine (potent stuff). Those skills were pass on from generation to generation. I don't think there are many people who quilt now. Probably all done by machines...sigh
