Coal mining has been a family tradition since before I was born. My husband and both boys have worked the mines. This is the first quilt I have made since the 1980s. It was a super challenge for me. I had to search deep to find inspiration to create this for him. I walked into the room and found him reading a coal miner's prayer. He loves. Job successful.
