    The pink and blue quilt on the rack is one my MIL was doing when she was sick with bladder cancer. She got the top done,you can see the points are so wrong, she made them fit. It was made for a GrndD. that helped her a lot. Machine stitch was railroad tracks if you know what I mean. Tension wrong. I sandwiched it and had to stitch in the Ditch each piece so it would stay together. Lost the pic. of it finished. She passed away before she could finish it from congested heart failure. The Blk,Gray Comforter and shams were made for Amanda by me She was only 18 and did a lot for Her Grandmother. She ask me if I would make Her a Blk,Gray,White Comforter before she got old. LOL I made for Her before she turned 19. She wanted it the Crazy way, like I did my sisters. It is also dryer sheet foundation.
    Well Folks that is it. I lost a lot in the hurricane. I don't have anymore until I finish what I am doing. So now maybe I can get back to my sewing room and only get on here less often. DOUBT THAT!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I love the black and gray one. As for the other one I think that Amanda will reall charish that considering that it was made by Granny. It might have some mistakes in it but that is what will make it special later when she gets older.

    It is so lovely to hear the real life stories behind each quilt, it makes each quilt so special and enables us to appreciate them so much more.

    I love them both, but the black n white crazy is fantastic :D

    The black and gray one is gorgeous. But Granny's quilt is one I would love to see in person, just to touch it and caress it. I just love those old family quilts!!!!

    I love the crumb quilt you made for Amanda! Black and white is so classic. The quilt that Granny made is so special. Who cares that nothing matches up correctly. There is nothing better than the time and love that went into that quilt. Thanks for sharing the story with us.

    But the one made by Granny just touched my heart. It is beautiful!!! When you wrap yourself in it you will still the love she had in her heart while she was sewing it.

    The black and white quilt really commands attention! That is beautiful. I love the other colors too. I can't make up my mind which one I like the best.

    Beautiful black/white quilt, heartbreaking story for the other one....
    you can almost feel Grandma's determination to get that thing done before she passed away... brings tears to my eyes.

    I love the story behind the pink and blue one, and if it was mine I would chaerish it for the time and effort it took a loved one to make for me. The black and gray one is magnificant.

    Your black and white quilt is stunning. But, of course, I love the pink and blue quilt because of the story about how your MIL made it. Very touching.
