I skipped over to ma’s last night and dug this quilt out of her closet. What fun it’s been to rediscover all the memories we stitched into this quilt.
The quilt was made for Mom and Dad’s 40th anniversary – June 7, 1981. Back when they had only 25 grandchildren. Thinking about that as I took pictures of the quilt made me realize how many of the grandchildren probably don’t remember ever seeing it.
The brown squares in the quilt were made by Judy, the green by Ann, the white by Barb, and I made the blue squares. We were all new to quiltmaking at that time and really had no idea what we were doing, just an idea of what we wanted to do.
If you happen to stop by Park Avenue for a visit, ask to see the quilt – it’s fun to look at each square and if it doesn’t bring any memories to mind, ask grandma to share hers.
