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.
