I thought I would share some of the precious quilts that I saw at Houston Hospice a few weeks ago when I went to see Sandy before she passed.
Houston Hospice is located on Holcombe Street on the edge of the Houston Medical Center. If you aren’t from this area, our Med Center is one to behold! We are truly blessed to be surrounded by an amazing health care system and it is nice to know that it is in our backyard.
When I walked in, one of the first things I noticed was a bright quilt hanging on the wall. Linda and I looked at it and admired it. It was nice to know that quilts can be all around us and how comforting they can be.
As we walked to the room we noticed there were quilts in the hall and most dated back to c. 1900. The quilts were dated and donated to commemorate loved ones that had stayed there.
These are the quilts that I was able to photo. I only took a few. I hope you enjoy them; hopefully the pictures will relay their beauty.
The first quilt was quilted in black thread; I thought that was unusual for that time period.
I am truly blessed; I hope you are blessed by your daily threads. Love and hugs,
