Folkstreams quilt videos

Here are a couple of wonderful films about quilting.  I've watched them several times over the last year.  Besides the creative outlet that quilting gives me, I feel a connection to the women in my family.  My grandmother made quilts all her life.  Every single baby, grandbaby, great-grandbaby received a quilt from grandma.  Her mother also quilted.  Her name was Martha Elizabeth Yarbrough Gossvener and I have 120 Grandmother's Fan blocks made by Martha in 1935.  They have the pattern pieces cut out of the newspaper Home and Farm published in Arkansas with them.
