I cant tell this story with out crying. The lady that pieced this quilt is currently battling cancer. She brought me this top and asked me to quilt it as a wedding present for her 9 year old grandson. What a incredible legacy. We used a variegated thread and an all over pattern. I wanted the beautiful piecework to show and for the quilt to point to his loving grandmother. The pattern and thread are gorgeous on the back so it will be like having a reversible quilt.
