    THIS is Why I Quilt!

    I sent "String Crossroads" to my granddaughter. This was the first quilt I designed from scratch, and I wanted her to have it to remember me (not that I'm going anywhere for a LONGLONG time!).

    She loved looking at all the different fabrics that I included. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree--I remember spending hours looking at my maternal grandmother's and great-grandmother's quilts wondering "Who wore this fabric?" or "Where did this material come from?" Their work was an inspiration to me, though I didn't quite realize it at the time.

    We never know what people will remember about us in years to come. I hope people remember about me, "She was a kind person, and she was a quilter."
    Courtesy is not optional.

    Isn't it funny how we get older and think what will people remember us for. Your quilt will be a fine reminder that you were here. Probably lots of little reminders all over about who you were and what a fine person you are
    Walk in peace with the Lord by your side.

            Beyond the sentimentalities (also the reason I quilt) I am so impressed with your "String Crossroads" creation! This is a fantastic layout and the use of scraps is perfection.

                            Will you make me a quilt if I promise to remember you forever? Haha just kidding! That is a beautiful quilt and your GD looks like she is in love with it too! Nice use of scraps and great design.
