    I went to a family reunion last Sunday in Vermont and my Aunt was asking me about my quiilting. She said come to the farm later and I have some fabric you can have. I followed her later to the farm and while the hubby was picking blueberries I was picking out fabric. I am going to surprise her and make her a quilt from the fabric she gave me. To the washer they go with my huge bag of goodies.

    Did you get family stories? Did she she tell about her quilting? I love these stories and memories. You must be special to this lady.

    Too funny. When you mentioned fabric from 89 year old aunt, I pictured ancient calico and gingham. :oops: Your aunt obviously has kept on rockin'.
