This is my mystery quilt. I’ve had it since 1987. I inherited it from my Aunt Pearl. When she passed away, I was allowed to pick anything in her house that I wanted and this was one thing I chose. I assumed she made it since she was a great seamstress, but her daughter says she didn’t. So, I have no idea who made it or where it came from.
I can remember sleeping under my grandma’s quilts since I was a very little girl. They kept me warm.

Even though my grandma passed away in 1984, I still feel her love with me to this day. She had such an ability to love unconditionally.
I think of her a lot and feel that she is still a part of my family’s lives.
I have collected lots of fabric and love quilting magazines, I always think one of these days when I have lots of time, I am going to make a quilt. Why is it that time seems to be one thing there is never enough of?
I did try to make a doll quilt a few years ago. I got to the binding and never completed it.
I hope you are all having a wonderful January and enjoying a fresh start this year. There is so much we can do to enrich our own lives and the lives of others. May we each look away from the faults of others and just see love.
Wishing you much happiness,
