She reminds me of my Grandmother. Every year she would make quilts, completely by hand (she did not own a sewing machine) and then donate them to abused children. I never found out what agency she donated to. She didn't have the modern conveniences that you and I have...just fabric, scissors, thread, and needles. My grandmother would make the tops in the spring and summer and quilt them in the fall and winter. This helped to keep her warm. In a good year she would complete 3-4 quilts a year.

We should all learn from her generosity!
