Warmth of Tradition

All of you who have been into our store have seen the story of Grandma Bacon's antique quilt: The quilt that became The Bed-Warmer signature quilt. Recently, Darren's sister found two more of Grandma Bacon's incredible quilts made by her mother Ann Bunting Ward. These two quilts are a bow-tie and a double wedding ring patterns.

 Isn't it amazing that even after over fifty years, we still incorporate the same designs and patterns in our quilts. Although some of our methods and tools may have changed, we are still connected with the past in the most tangible of ways. There is something truly wonderful about being able to wrap up in a quilt made with love and being able to feel the presence of our loved ones past. Isn't it also amazing to know that the quilts we make today can be passed down through our generations, perhaps someday being cuddled in by a grandchild or great-grandchild, feeling that same love that was stitched in to every block. We are proud to display these three quilts by Ann Bunting Ward in our shop, and we are honored to help you create beautiful quilts filled with love.
