While organizing my quilts Monday, I came across this bedspread that was hand crocheted by my great grandmother. She made it for my mother using the popcorn stitch. I don’t know its exact age, but I believe it had to be made in the early 1940s or even earlier, since my mother was born in 1920. Here is a close-up of the stitching and fringe.
She also made a separate piece to go over the pillows.
The bedspread is not large. I believe it was made to be part of her “hope chest” and was sized to be a topper for a double bed.
When my mother broke up her household in 1997 she gave this to our daughter, who gave it back to me when we returned to
in 2006. I hope to figure out a way to use it on our queen-sized guest bed. Texas
