Christmas Quilt

Several years ago my mom gave me a stack of unfinished quilt tops found in my Grandma's house. I shared these treasures with the Gingerich women quilters. Carolyn loved the Christmas star, but it was in pretty sad shape, torn, worn out, and incomplete. This year she decided to take on this quilting project. At the quilt store she was told that the quilt was probably from the 1800's. She matched fabrics, did some repair work, and hand quilted it with a beautiful feather pattern.
I wish I knew more about the origin of this quilt. It's nice to think it was sewn by one of my ancestors long ago. Thank you Carolyn for your beautiful work!
