My Uncle Greg...

passed away last night. Such a loss. He made this quilt for me and I slept under it last night. He was a very talented man. Each block in this quilt contains fabric that he painted and stamped, himself. There are over 50 pieces of fabric per block. I have something really wonderful to remember him by. Something that is so quintessentially Uncle Greg. He'll be missed. But his gifted talent will go on... maybe that is one of the subconscious reasons we quilt? Something of us will live on when we're gone.

Oh my - I am sorry. He left you an extraordinary gift - that quilt is unique, one of a kind, and worthy of closer photos. I've never seen the pattern before. What a lovely tangible gift he left you, as well as the gift of love.

I'm so sorry, Nines. He was truly a special man to you...and you a special niece to him. What a lovely common thread you two shared. And yes...he will live on.

Love you.
