Dear Daughter BOM

 Look at this cool old quilt! The reds are trashed but check out that amazing blue sashing! I think it can be called double blue or prussian blue. Love these blocks with the birds.  It has signatures throughout with lovely sentiments like this:
He who sows courtesy, reaps friendship, And he who plants kindness, gathers love.
Gay has written those down so they can be used for those who are reproducing this quilt.
Gay is so generous and she loves to share her antique quilts with us! Right now you can get blocks 1-8 free on her website. I am going to direct you to her blog so you can read about the quilt and use the links to get to her online store. (You put them in your cart, but they are free, for one month!)  And I'll say her patterns are great, accurate and detailed! Click HERE to check out the Dear Daughter quilt.

And my Instagram feed for the week. 
Have a fantastic weekend!!
