Tilly's Quilts

These quilts were made for my mother when she was a child.

Tilly was a young woman who looked after my mother and cleaned my grandmother's house (kind of hard to imagine, yes?) and her mother hand pieced and quilted these.

I believe they were made in Pennsylvania in the 1950's.

I had them on my bed as a child. They are somewhat faded and showing years of love and wear so they are displayed on a blanket stand in the guest room at my parents' house and don't get any use now.

It just seemed like they needed sharing.
