I am putting together a quilt top for a friend of a friend. This was the original.
The tradition of this family is that when one of the women of the family has her first child all of the other women make a quilt block to be put into a quilt for that child. These quilts are family treasures.
Unfortunately this quilt was lost in a house fire. Many family members got together to replace the original blocks, and I was asked to do the honor of putting these blocks into quilt top and quilting it. Which is what I have been working on the past two weeks.
More to come...
