Days Gone By

Don’t ya just love photos from days gone by… I do!!
The black and white and sepia tones magically transport one back in time.  This photo comes from the archives of the Gilbert Historical Museum a wonderful little museum in the heritage district, downtown Gilbert, Arizona.
Among the many wonderful programs at the museum is an on-going Quilting Bee. A group of dedicated volunteer quilters take folks quilt tops and finish them off with beautiful hand quilting. Just as in days gone by the quilt top, batting and backing are affixed to large quilting frames and the tallented quilters work their hand quilting magic.

If you have a special quilt top you would like finished with hand quilting click here for more information.

Recently my cousin posted this family picture on Facebook...
Tis the Queenie Father’s family in days gone by.
And if you look close you will see a wee Queenie in the early years of her monarchy.
What! Beautiful and loving Queenie Parents, don’t you think!!

Have a great day!
