I had the priviledge of working on this quilt (a fund raiser) in my grandmother's hometown. It was a special honor to work with women whom I had known since I was very small. Most of them attend the church my grandfather did when I was small.
Each square is hand embroidered and then joined to the others before quilting. The ladies who met to quilt on it worked in the very same store that my grandfather worked in for 60 years.
Last weekend the quilt brought $5600.00 to the ministry of THE LORD'S ACRE.
It was such a neat opportunity to give something back to the tiny town that holds such sweet memories for me!
