I never met my Great Grandma Ida. She passed away the year before I was born. I have seen a lot of her handiwork and felt a connection to here. That maybe some of my love of this art came from her.
I was thrilled when my grandma, her daughter gave me her quilt. I loved the pattern so much. I wanted to make my own. If you’ve visited before you have heard this story. I worked on this project now and then. Mostly it sat in a bin patiently waiting. Grandma would ask me about it when I would visit. I’d always have to tell her I was still working on it. Well her only living brother and sister passed away recently. That was a wake up call for me. I knew I had to finish it. Thank you to everyone who gave their two cents as I decided borders.
I put some of the piano keys that auditioned on the back. Quilted it with a meandering vine. And some day great grandma and I will sit and chat as we enjoy our love of quilting.
Linking up withSarah to celebrate this finish.
