Default Memory Quilt of Grandma

I made my sister a quilt that was in memory of my Grandma. The pieced blocks represent he glower asks she bought and made quilts from. My grandma had cats that lived under the porch. She fed e biscuits and gravy every morning. The ticking material is what she made her mattresses out of - they were stuffed with feathers. The old kitchen items merely representing some of the items in her home. I quilted flowers all over it but I did not connect them. I hope I don't regret that but grandma had flowers all over her yard. This is the first quilt I made with my long arm quilter. My sister loved it. I hope my pictures post!

Thoughts of Grandmas bring very special memories to mind and you captured them well.
