ANTIQUE QUILTS AND ODDITIES

No one in Mom's family has knowingly thrown anything away since 1635 when the first ones landed on this continent. Some of those things, well, a goodly number of them, are still lying around. This page will feature some of the more unusual ones, and offer some of them for sale.

Antique Quilts:

YoYo Quilt

PHOTO OF WHIRLAWAY AT THE TRIPLE CROWN

This photo has been in our house for a long time. The writing on the back states that it was from 'Aunt Jane's husband.' That would be Jane Miller, as her maiden name. It also states that she was 'Marion's aunt.' which might have made Uncle Bob a McNeil. But the note states that this was 'one of Uncle Bob's horses.' I guess Uncle Bob was mighty proud of this one.

There used to be a Horse Shoe, but one of my babysitters stole it when I was little.

Photo is For Sale. Make an offer.
