    Hi Again! I thought I would share with you the quilt that I made for my husband's family reunion. We waited until the night that we knew that most everyone would be there and then drew names for the quilt. This is the second one that I have made for the reunions. I am sure it won't be the last! I hope not, anyway! Next time, I would like to do some type of an album quilt that everyone can sign.
    I hope you all have had a great day and will have an even better night....
    Take Care....

    Your reunion quilt is beautiful. Who won it? You said this is not the first one you have done--do you have pics of others??

    My niece (husband's sister's daughter, if you can follow that!) won the quilt and it couldn't have gone to anyone better. I was relieved that it went to someone who would appreciate it.

    I wanted to contribute in some way and make something that was special and that every year or every other year when we gather, everyone will look forward to. It is something that lasts and will bring good memories, I guess, is what I am trying to say. And I think it makes my husband feel good that I do it.

    Oh WOW! I love the colors and the applique. And that scalloped edge. Anyone would love to be the winner of this beauty. An album quilt seems perfect for a reunion. Can I join your family?

    You said you drew names for it, did everyone buy a raffle ticket so the proceeds would go to help pay for the reunion? It is a lovely quilt. I think you did a marvelous job on it. I wish I could do as well.

    No raffle.....We each donate a certain amount of money and all contribute in whatever ways that we are able. Some more than others. It just depends on the family. That way everyone can afford to come. The quilt giveaway is just a bonus for the evening of the biggest day of the reunion. We usually show old movies of the family (most from the 30's and 40's) and after the movie that is when we have the drawing for different types of small door prizes and then the quilt at the last. It is a lot of fun.

    I want my family to remember me when I am gone.....Not for the negative things that I have done but for the good. Life is too short to waste such precious time with negative thoughts and behavior. I love them so much and I guess I want them to feel the same way about me.
