About

Little Quilts from the Appalachian Mountains of North Georgia

I have always enjoyed looking at the patterns used for patchwork quilts. There is a patchwork geometry - the most popular block being the 9 patch. This is a easy to work-with number....and easy to handle.

Many if the traditional patchwork patterns were shared by word of mouth and maybe sometimes, a pattern drawn on a brown paper bag. This swapping is one reason there are so many designs and so many names. Some of the old patterns will have a dozen different names. If the name if forgotten in the passing on, there was another name made up....

The first quilt I remember seeing made was when I was 6 years old....and the quilting ladies would let me thread the needles for them while sitting on the floor under the quilt. I have looked at, talked about, made, drew, taught, and sold quilts ever since.

I am to the state in my life where my fingers do not want to work and I cannot always see that I am making that row of stitches small and straight. My quilted items are functional - sometimes there is a place that looks like a Granny did it. This is part of the charm of hand made quilts...made by a person, and one of a kind. They will have personality, where a machine-made, cookie-cutter quilt will look like a machine-made, cookie-cutter quilt.

I am in my 80s, mother to 4, grandmother to 9, and great-grandmother to so many I have to count them LOL When raising my family, I worked for Civil Service with the US Army. After many years of have scads of started projects, retirement should have meant I would finish those UFOs (Unfinished Objects), but I see I will never get all the patterns and color ways made.

I consider it a honor to sell on Etsy and to the delightful people who are interested in my quilts, however small they are. The quilt lovers are the nicest people in the world...I am always glad to hear from them.

Welcome to my The Little Quilt shop. I am please to share my needlework. Anything I sell can be returned, check my policies for more info..

Also, you are invited to visit my other Etsy shop - http://AmandasGranny.etsy,com. I have downsizing, left overs and other types of needle work in this shop.

Peace.........mildred

I use traditional quilt patterns for sewing, painting....every and anything. There is some skill involved in using a 9 Patch Pattern for an eight inch potholder...you know: like math.

Granny is a real grandmother...and a real great grandmother.... Her work has.the distinct characteristics of hand work...it may have a imperfection that that shouts "made with love and by Granny...not in the factory".

She is always glad to answer any questions.....
