My Grandpa Harry was a kind and generous man. As a baby my mom would put me in one of his big mixing bowls while she decorated cakes at his bakery. When I got older I remember trick or treating at his bakery to get big yummy donuts. It didn’t even have to be Halloween to get a donut from grandpa. He is gone now. The bakery is still there and my Uncle David is still good for a big yummy donut when I stop by. In honor of my Grandpa Harry I created this quilt.
His parents immigrated from the Netherlands so I used a Dutchmen’s Puzzle block. Bordered them with a scrappy border because he was a fighter, always willing to stand for what he felt was right. And used bright happy colors to remember how he always made others happy. Then quilted it with a puzzle motif.
Named it Harry’s Puzzle in his honor. It is in the current issue of Fon’s and Porter’s Love of Quilting. Love ya Grandpa. Hope you like your quilt.
