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"!!
