Pictures first, and then the story!



annnd some close up detail. Her stitches are so tiny!:



This quilt was made by my Gram.  I wanted to show off what she made!  According to her, it took her about a year and a half.  (She says it would of taken less time if she hadn't broken her foot halfway through making it.)   While she was working on it, each one of my three girl cousins told Grandma how beautiful the quilt was and asked if they could have it.  Gram somehow found out that my favorite color is purple, and gave it to me last week at my birthday party.  I absolutely love it, and BAWLED when she gave it to me.  So much love went into this purple quilt.   Pretty good for an 84 year old lady, no?

That's beautiful. I love the story behind it. And that's definitely something you can pass down, with the story too!
