It's a queen size, that her sisters had made for their mother (my grandmother, obviously). When she passed away 10 years ago, they all thought my mom should have it, it came to me now. Each block is specific to the grandchildren, as well as the sisters and some of the husbands. I would love to be able to share this with my family in a meaningful way.
What I am about to say may raise a lot of angst, but I was thinking of deconstructing it, splitting it into the families and making wall hangings for each branch of the family. It was mostly hand stitched, all hand quilted about 40 years ago. It's been in a box, behind a book shelf for most of the last 10 years.
Please give me a new idea. I don't want to deconstruct it, it seems wrong, but I don't know how to share it with my cousins without doing just that. I want to get this posted, but I will post a picture or two of it in just a few minutes.
