Treasures turn up when clearing out Mom's house.

This antique indigo and red doll quilt was made for my mother about 1925 by my grandmother. It has a cotton batt and is tied rather than quilted. There is also a small cotton gingham doll pillow with embroidered trim.

These are on top of a cotton gingham apron with white cross-stitch embroidery, my grandmother's handwork.

In the background is a doll chest made by my grandfather for my mother. It is now in my art/sewing studio.

Some of these items will go to a museum in western Oklahoma.

What charming memories. You never know what will be cherished in later years.
