Three-Generation Memory Quilt

The memory quilt that began as a workshop project sponsored by the quilt club in March is complete.  It is best viewed up close because many of the pieces are smaller than a dime.  After ferreting through little boxes that had been shoved to the back of dresser drawers for years, I ended up with memorabilia from three generations on my father’s side of the family.  Some of them were vintage crochet pieces.  Others were little pieces of jewelry including some 50-year recognition pins belonging to my father and grandmother. 

I tried to document on the label who was represented in this piece, hopefully making it a little more meaningful someday to our daughter.  After taking it to “show and share” time at the quilt club next week, it will hang in our house.

Ah, yes, the lovely old linens and bits and pieces of family Memory--you've revived them well and kept Memory going.
