ABC Wednesday ~ Q is for…

Q is for a Quote by Queen Victoria

 

“Give my People plenty of Beer, good beer and cheap beer, and you will have no Revolution among them” ~ Queen Victoria

 

Q is for Quail, the California State Bird ~

Q is for Quilts. The State Quilt with State Flowers and Birds was made by my MIL Verna.

 

I can’t imagine the work that went into this. Sorry for the lousy photos of the quilts. I took them last year before I figured out better ways to photograph things…

The next two Quilts were handed down to us. The pastel one is from Dear’s grandmother Nettie and red patterned one is from Dear’s mother Verna.

For more posts on the letter Q visit Mrs. Nesbitt.

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007-2015 hostage and they have blacked them all out. I’m slowly working at restoring my posts without their help. Such a tiresome bother!

  1. I whole Heartedly agree with this Quote, cause I likes beer.lol.
    Great post and great photos.

    Pop over to see my Q post and the Bluebells.

  2. Hi, tis me again.

  3. Love the quote. She definitely had the goods versus Marie Antoinette. My Mimi was a quilter. My favorite is the red patterned one. Very pretty.

  4. Wow… Ellen, I didn’t know you have a collection of quilts too! 😉 You always keep me in suspense as to what treasures you will show next on your blog! I love it!!! I absolutely love the bird quilt. And the others are just as precious because it’s part of your family’s heritage.

  5. It was tough for me to find a suitable Q for this week, but you seem to have a great many! Love your photos. I’ve got a nice quilt at home perhaps I’ll be taking photographs of it for round 3 lol

  6. Hmmmm. I guess Queen Victoria wasn’t as starchy as some history books and her photos make her appear!

    I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a weather vane with a quail on it before.

  7. Thanks for stopping by…love your Q pics too, esp. the Queen Victoria quote…that is great! This weekend we celebrate Queen Victoria’s birthday so we get a holiday from work! Yay!! Have a great rest of the week!

  8. well here is a whole queue of quilts. I think I’ve seen about seven posts this morning that featured some lovely quilts and you have a whole lot more.
    Victoria features on two of my blogs today too.

  9. Oh I didn’t think of quilt! I thought of quail but didn’t have any photos! And what a wondrful quote. Did she really say that? She must have been a wise old bird!

  10. Well, I have Queen Victoria in a second post, but my regular ABC Q goes back to the Mountains. Wonderful family quilts. Take care of them for posterity.
