Now as Peter went here and there among them all, he came down also to the saints who lived at Lydda. There he found a man named Aeneas, bedridden for eight years, who was paralyzed. And Peter said to him, “Aeneas, Jesus Christ heals you; rise and make your bed.” And immediately he rose. And all the residents of Lydda and Sharon saw him, and they turned to the Lord. -Acts 9:32-35
This quilt was hand-pieced by my grandmother over forty years ago. She made the top from 3" squares saved from her dresses and my grandfather's shirts. She died before she could finish it. My mother saved it and gave it to me to finish. I tied it instead of quilting the layers because the fabric is so fragile I didn't think it could hold stitching. It's hanging on my wall now. While I was finishing it I was thinking about her and noticing that most of the dress fabric is in shades of brown.
I took photos all through 2007-09 for Project 365 to post at least one photo a day. Now that my oldest son is in the Air Force we are using this photo blog to share our adventures with him across the miles.
