Aunties 2nd Embroidery Quilt
I posted the first one a few months ago... in pinks. This is number two... had two to go. But, now yesterday Aunt Lorraine told me she found two totes full of completed blocks she'd forgotten she had. She is 82.. and has been stitching these blocks for almost 40 years now. Some of the blocks in this quilt are almost 40 years old. Stored in totes, in zip lock bags. Just waiting for someone to make them into quilts for her. I had to grow up and start quilting I guess. She has 4 daughters, but this is more of a project than they can handle.
It is a labor of love, and respect for my Aunt. Cannot imagine the hours and hours she spent hand stitching each block. We're thinking she had about 200 completed, haven't counted exactly with the new find of blocks.
So, now she's thinking of her 4 grandchildren... and thinking she wants 4 more made! Oh boy...
The blocks are 16"x16", and this is a queen size.
