Made with a Grandmother’s Love

These blocks have a special history. They were given to me by my daughter’s cheerleading coach. Her grandmother had been a lifelong quilter, crocheter, and crafter. When she died at age 99, she left her granddaughter a treasure trove of quilting supplies, tools, and unfinished projects, which Coach Kelli gave to me because she knew I was a quilter. I made a quilt for Kelli out of a set of Mardi Gras blocks I found among the boxes, but have never had time to finish this beautiful set of blocks into a quilt. Now one of you will get the chance to finish this project which was started with so much care and craftsmanship.

Here’s just a small sampling of the blocks in the giveaway. The other blocks are compatible with this set. They are mostly floral prints with either larger-scale or smaller-scale flowers like the ones you see below. We promise the winner will love them!

    I began sewing when I was 21 and have loved it ever since, from learning to sew for my baby daughter and myself., on through her school years and graduation. As other kiddies came along, they got tops, shorts and anything else I could sew for them. Well they are all gone and my sister-in-law introduced me to quilting as I was getting ready to retire. Now quilting fills my days. I love learning new patterns and this Diamond in a Square looks like so much fun. Thank you so much for enriching our lives with all your good information. Blessings on you !!
