    One of my Aunt's quilts

    This is the Lady who got me started quilting about 20 years ago. She is self taught, and also got my Uncle to quilt. She has been an inspritation to me all my life.

    it's nice when couples share the same interests. Your Uncle and Aunt are very good at what they do. When I ask my husband what he is going to do with all my stuff when I pass, he tells me he is going to quilt ;-)

    It is really striking for such a limited palette. So nice she was able to pass on the joy of quilting too.

    I love how that red looks in the quilt with those other colors, and you must be so proud of your aunt and uncle. It is so nice to be close that way. It's a blessing.

    It's no wonder you and your uncle got bit by the quilt bug. Your Aunties quilt is beautiful and how lucky for you to have her in your life! I can feel the LOVE!

    I, too, like that one red stripe in with all the blacks and white. It is beautiful and it gives me a great idea I can use myself. Thank you so much for sharing with us.
    God Bless,
