I have some beautiful old quilts that were my grandmother's
but this one is in a very sad state of disrepair
an old *Ohio Star quilt - it was obviously VERY well loved
but a "cutter" now
oh it was hard!
... then I had an idea ...
I'll make heart ornaments for all of my cousins
it will be fun to slip a heart into a Christmas Card and include a note about the old quilt
we'll all have a piece of history that connects us to one another
*the Ohio Star quilt originated in the mid 1800's and experienced a huge revival in the 1930's. It is a favorite pattern for scrap quilting and many thrifty households in the depression era used feed sacks, shirts, sheets, dresses, etc as resources for their scrap quilts
