This is a real find! This never-used, hand stitched, embroidered baby quilt was found in the estate of a lady who was in her 90s when she died years ago. It would appear that she made this for her only grandchild who has long since grown and gone, but never got to use the quilt. Measuring 42” x 32” there are nine embroidered white cotton squares, each with a different cat pose – sleeping, eating, playing, etc. The center square is larger than the others and depicts a mama cat in a shoe with her three kittens peeking out around it. Underneath is stitched: Lived in a shoe. Between each white square are pink squares, and the back of the quilt is also the same pink. No only is each cat quilted around so that its outline shows up on the back, but other figures were quilted into the pattern, perhaps for educational purposes for the baby to learn shapes: a rabbit, butterfly, circle, rectangle, diamond. This quilt is so clean that the cotton still has a slight sheen to it. It has been stored away for years and has no odor, but there are a few light spots, some very small dark spots (pictured), and a very small hole (pictured). Otherwise it is in incredible condition.
