What was your inspiration? I've always loved the 1930s fabrics - almost as much for their colorfulness as for the memories they represent. My grandmother wasn't a quilter, but each of the beds in her old farmhouse was covered by a beautiful handmade quilt. I'm sure that most of them had been given to her by those who had no need for them, and my mother wouldn't allow quilts in our house as they reminded her of the hard times her family struggled through during the depression. But Grandma's quilts were special to me and this one helps me remember her with love.
