I decorate with quilts
This is an oldie but goodie, one of my first garage sale finds. I bought it in the Broad Ripple neighborhood of Indianapolis when we lived there in the mid-1980s. I loved it so much I added a border and backing. It's in fragile shape, with some shattered silks, but I love the vibrant colors. The block measures 19" x 19". Most of the year I store it carefully wrapped around a cardboard tube.....
We have some lovely photos of Christmases past, thanks to my dad's sister Marianne who kept them carefully in albums. Here she is, posing in front of her Christmas tree in St. Louis in 1954.
