Sunbonnet Sue cradle quilt This sweet little cradle quilt from my website was a gift to “Dolores”, December 25, 1934 from “Nanna Smith”.

Nanna Smith is undoubtedly gone now, for all we know so is Dolores, but this quilt is a little something to keep the warmth between them alive in the world, these 74 years later.

You can see more detailed pictures of the quilt here: Sunbonnet Sue Cradle Quilt

I wish everyone would have inscribed their quilts; I’d love to know more of the quilters and their personalities. They’ve left a beautiful legacy.

If you’re a quilter, remember how important it will be to those you leave behind to inscribe the quilts you make with love.
