Quilted Hearts and Pillows

When I was just a little over a year old, my Mom drove from Missouri to Kentucky to introduce me to my Great-Grandmother Pearl Brown. Grandmother had been piecing together scraps of fabric in preparation to make a quilt. Using some of the leftover pieces, she made this small pillow with ruffled edges for her newest great-granddaughter. This pillow became a prized possession until many years later when it finally fell apart.

Quilted Hearts and Pillows

When Grandmother Brown died in January 1975, her youngest daughter, my great-Aunt Bonnie, took many of the scraps of fabric from her mother’s collection and created these small stuffed hearts. She gave these to all the family members as a keepsake of our grandmother.

Today, all these years later, those hearts are still proudly displayed in my mother’s home along with the other quilt pillows from Grandmother Brown.
