The first one (Postage Stamp) is not in that great of shape! Many of the little squares have been replaced, but were NOT replace with cotton. Feels like a synthetic of some sort! It will take a little TLC to get this one back in shape! But can I tell you the back is PERFECT! It is the flipped over Bright Yellow (My guess is feed sack) and I LOVE it!! It is not 'quilted' only tied with fine purple thread... to the back side! Weird!!
The second one is probably in the best shape! The back is a fake out itty bitty triangle thing Heidi (aka Hagatha or the Troll guarding the bridge) has it flipped over on her side. This one is also tied and I think I might see if it is big enough to fit my bed! If so... I am SO putting it on there!!
The third one, the tumbler, is in pretty good shape. It needs a new binding and I need to see if I can work the water stains out of it! (Can we say hello Biz and a special thank you to Mary for her leg work in this matter!! Thanks for your help!!)
So I will be pulling out the stops and working magic on this big bad (my guess is this one is a queen!)
My Dad says these were either made by his Mother (Flossie Festina Elizabeth Fettererer Iffland) or his Grandmother (who I only know by Grandma Cook LOL) But his grandmother has been gone since the early 50's and his Mother passed away soon after my Sister was born in '71!
