Quilting Through a Generation
I didn't know my husbands grandparents very well, but I have heared so many stories about them I feel like I have known them all my life. Grandpa Lloyd passed away this November, the day before Kai was born, and Grandma Joyce has gone into a nursing home with alzheimer's. My wonder mother-in-law has a grasp for my sentimental side, in fact she shares it with me, and has been kind enough to bring me some treasures from their house in New York. Among those treasutes a 1979 Singer, that Joyce no doubt sewed countless projects, on and about five unfinished quilts. Here is one that I finished on the Singer for my oldest. I have not done the hand quilting of the squares yet, but that will come.
