I finished these four quilts in time for our family reunion. We'll be meeting in the mountains of West Virginia on Monday. All of my children will be there- as will all of my parents' children and grandchildren- and even a couple great-grandchildren. There's over 30 of us, these days. It'll be good to see everyone and catch up on all the goings-on. One of my brothers lives in Arizona, the other lives near Chicago and my sister lives in Florida. My parents live in West Virginia. Get a map out and you'll see it takes a concentrated effort to all convene in the same place at the same time. And Will and I have two sons in Alabama and one in Massachusetts. I wonder when some one will move to Montana... just to balance things out. It better be someone else's kid.
Audrey is my sister's only daughter and she's just the sweetest thing. Very musical and kind. She's a college student and I thought the quilt would work well in her dorm room. Even if she does live in Florida...
|Sarah Jane's Quilt|
My Mom pieced this quilt for my sister's younger daughter-in-law, Sarah Jane. She is a very gentle soul. Quiet but strong. I dyed the fabrics to match her wedding colors and then cut them into 5" squares for their guests to sign at their wedding. If you click on the picture, you might be able to see that many of the blocks are signed. I just quilted and bound it for her.
Well, ya know, I gotta go pack- or at least, get some laundry done! You guys have a great week and I'll catch ya on the flip side! God bless!
