Quilts - The Gift that Keeps on Giving

     This is the quilt that my Grandmother hand-made me back in 1995 The top was hand pieced and it took her a couple of years to hand quilt the entire twin sized quilt. At 9 years old, I didn't really appreciate the time and love that had gone into my Christmas present, but I used my quilt all the time.
     After I received my 'Sleepy Vaquero' quilt, I visited my Grandmother many times and she taught me to hand piece and quilt. I have lots of memories of sitting around a huge quilt frame, propped up on saw horses, and rolled around the edges with her quilting club and quilting my section of the quilt. The time that my Grandmother took to teach me to quilt and sew has been such an invaluable gift to me. She taught me to really love and appreciate quilting. And now, I am using those skills to start J.Lynne.
