What are you most proud of? That I was able to give a champion quilt to Clifton and Glenda. I attended their wedding in September, 1958. I married Clifton's older brother, John Dave, in May of the same year. Unfortunately we never got to have a 50th anniversary, so it was important to me to help make sure theirs was happy.. I thought the label that I made for their quilt was kind of neat and appropriate. I think it all came together pretty well. They are proud of it, and still consider me their sister as we all grew up together from teenager's.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I can't think of anything that was out of the usual. Just follow pattern instructions. If you make a mistake take it out and keep trying-you will get it right and learn from it.

Yet another beautiful quilt - and I loved the story of how you made it for much loved relatives. What a wonderful token of your love and regard for them. Patricia

Thank you. I made it for a very special couple in my life I stood up with them at their wedding in 1958.
