We attended a memorial for DH Jim's wonderful Aunt Betty last weekend. It's sad to think of a world without her but she lived a life worth celebrating. Like all family gatherings of this type, we laughed, we cried, we hugged, told stories, cooked constantly and ate way too much. And we talked about quilts! Turns out Aunt Betty made a quilt or two in her younger years and so did her daughter Nancy. One of the women attending the memorial just turned to quilting about 5 years ago - she was a dear friend of Aunt Betty's when they both lived in Japan, although neither of them quilted at that time. Isn't it fun to be able to talk about quilting when you least expect it? Of course, Nancy brought out quilts for us to admire. I've already posted pictures of the crazy quilt she's trying to save in a separate post, but here are three more quilts. I'm sorry I don't remember who made which one or exactly when they were made. All are at least 30 years old.
