Memories of Grandma Emma
February 21, 2008 § 6 Comments
My Grandmother pieced together this quilt top while I was growing up. When I went to college my mother sent it to the Ladies Guild at church to have it hand quilted and I used it on my bed in the dorms.
The quilting stitches are coming undone.
And some of the fabrics are starting to wear.
So… I no longer use this quilt. But I love it because the fabrics are from clothing that my grandmother had made. She had rhuematoid arthritis as long as I can remember. In her later years she could no longer sew, but would crochet. My memories of her include house dresses, chocolate chip cookies and Kool-Aid.
