42 YEARS TO COMPLETE!
My mother-in-law started this quilt in 1976. With three children and life getting in the way she was unable to finish it. She is now 92, and gave the few finished pieces to me last October. Needing more fabric I was lucky enough to match the red and blue, but unfortunately the two prints were cut from old shirts belonging to her youngest son. A few of her finished blocks were even hand sewn together. She is an amazing lady and I feel honored to have been able to finish this quilt for her. P.S. She received it today and loved the quilt. She shared with me that the original pattern belonged to her great-grandmother.
