This Ocean Waves quilt was hand pieced by my grandmother prior to 1960. It was obviously made from used clothing, and the fabric was quite fragile in places with worn spots and even one tear. The quilt is not square by any means and was a challenge to quilt it because of that. But done is good! I bound the quilt with solid black fabric to match the dots in the white fabric. I wish I had more history on this quilt, but I was only 2 years old when my grandmother passed away and all those stories she could tell me about her quilts have long since been lost. I do know from other relatives that she was a "modern" woman and I think she would have been thrilled to have been able to machine quilt.
