My Mother's handmade baby quilt for me:

My Mom, Susie Williams, loves to embroider.
She has always wished to make a proper quilt, but so far has never got around to it.
But in 1960 she made me an adorable embroidered quilt which I still have and I just love it.

The hen and chicks are one of my favourite blocks! 
My Mom's stitching is so neat.
I love the fabric she chose to block the quilt.
This was on my bed for years until I outgrew it.
I used to pretend it was in my covered wagon, in those long ago days when I played Laura Ingalls on top of my bed!

Another of the darling blocks.
I love hand made items, don't you?
