Before my mother passed away in 1995, she wanted to hand out the quilts that she had. She decided to put a number on the quilts and then have the four of us draw a number. Our numbers would match the number on the quilt.

I was priviledged to get the quilt she had gotten from her mother. This is a friendship quilt with the names of my grandmother's sisters, sisters-in-law and several nieces. This quilt was made in the 1920's and is in perfect condition. I treasure this 'gift' as part of my inheritance and remembrance of my very resourceful, ambitious, talented grandmother.
