Cutting up Scraps and My Great Aunt’s Quilts!

Today I’m busy cutting up 3 1/2″ squares to send to my Great Aunt Columbia Jane.  She likes brighter colors, so I’ve dove into my 1980’s and ’90’s fabric bins and started cutting.  I also order some squares off of eBay.  She’ll enjoy this box when she receives it, I think!
Here are some pictures of the quilts she has made.  She is in her upper 80’s and still piecing!
Here she is a couple of years ago holding one of her creations.  And here are some other quilts she has made! Enjoy the show!

  1. What a wonderful inspiration your aunt is. All of these pictures should be placed in a scrapbook type journal with information about her for the quilters of your family (and others, too) for the future. It would be sad to lose the info with these quilts — I can just see someone wrapped up in one of these, not feeling well, looking at your aunt's quilt journal. How soothing!!
