This date always brings with it a lot of reflective memories, marking twelve years since we lost my twin sister to Leukemia. I learned within days of her first child's birth that I was pregnant. It's shocking to realize that - that daughter's daughter, has now graduation from high school. Where did the time go?
Emily is an outdoor kinda gal....loves the woods, water, & camping. A utilitarian lap quilt that can go from car to campground might be appreciated the most....so with this simple piecing, perhaps she will enjoy the 'flavor' of "Tall Trees" - 48" x 63".
It's now pieced. The backing needs piecing, and obviously machine quilting will be the following step. Depending upon how speedy this goes....it may be heading to Wisconsin before I document it further.
Never the less.....I wanted to share it here. Naturally....as a quilter.....any and all occasions calls for a quilt, don't they?
In memory of Nancy Theobald Willmas 1946-2002. This was the last time our family was all together in my sister's hospital room in New Mexico. Front - L to R - Nancy, Mom, Mary - Back, Richard - Chuck. Sadly, now only two of us remain (Richard and Mary)....but all are remembered.
I don't normally get so personal, however this is my life....of which of course quilting is just a portion....
