This machine pieced and hand tied 29" X 29" quilt is special because the red blocks are made from a fabric that my Grandmother, Mamie Leota Pearl Wittenmeyer Phillips, had used to cover a baby buggy. I machine pieced it and then hand tied it. My Grandmother was known to go to a dump, (Land fill) in Bradner, OH and come home with more than she had taken to throw away!! She would recycle everything she could! She had brought home a rustic baby buggy, covered it and we played with this buggy when we were young. In 2000, my Mother, Betty Jane Marsh Phillips, gave the buggy to me. I removed the buggy lining and washed it. The fabric had alot of worn areas, but I managed to salvage just enough to piece it into this quilt. My Grandmother made many memories with us, taught us frugal ways are to be shared. She used coffee can lids to make us little dishes to play with. She spray painted them, added a sticker, sealed it with clear varnish, and wa la!! Beautiful dishes!! She would be proud that I recycled the fabric from that old buggy. And yes, I have the old buggy, too! It needs alittle repair and then I plan on placing this quilt in it. Completion date was May 2000.
