Heirloom Quilt Square tells a story





Here is a photo of a photo of my grandmother, Ethel Frances Gilchrest Grant, at age 18. It was taken at her granduation from "Normal School."  As a homemaker, she would wear a house dress during the day to do her cleaning, cooking, etc. Then right before her husband arrived home for dinner, she would change into a new (clean) house dress. She made two quilt squares using fabric scrapes from her house dresses, but they never became a quilt. I put these wonderful heirlooms into hoops to preserve them and the story of her life as a conscientious homemaker.
