Blogger's Quilt Festival

This is one of my most meaningful quilts I have made so far.  Thinking always of my grandmother who taught me to sew, this quilt is in memory of her.  I made this snowball with pieces I cut from worn linens made by my grandmother from the same era as the reproduction prints.  Though Grandma is long gone, having died at age 99, I can see and feel her right here with me.  Hugs Grandma and a big "Thank you"!!  Now, click on the orange button below to enjoy the online quilt show from Amy.
