These are pictures of some of the quilts my mom made...I took them with a polaroid camara when I was still a teen-ager. I wish they were better quality, but I am still glad to have these to show. This is only a small sampling of the quilts she made. All before the rotary cutter! She cut out her template/pattern out of cardboard and would just hold it along with the fabric in her hands and cut out the pieces with scissors. I don't think I ever saw her use a pin or anything to hold the cardboard in place. Any part of the sewing that was done on a machine, was done on a treadle machine.
