auction quilt





My mother bought this wonderful redwork quilt included in a box of linens at an auction near home, and discovered her grandmother's name embroidered in one of the blocks! Carrie (Graada) Diekevers is on the top block along with a lot of other Diekevers.
I love the swan (duck?) and the owls. I will get a photograph of the whole quilt next time I'm home.
