Connie's Memory Quilt

Precious memories

There are 72, 12" muslin squares, that I hand embroidered. I kept 10 for my personal memories and mailed out the other 62 to relatives and friends and asked them to autograph and draw a picture if they liked and when I got them back, I would embroider each one and make into a quilt.

I started it in 1981. It took 1 year to get all the squares back and another year to complete the quilt. (I was still working at the time).

I entered it in the Vermont State Fair and won a Blue Ribbon.

What a treasure!

Connie, It's gorgeous, and while the special meaning of each block is not known to the casual viewer, it is obvious that each block is filled special meaning. A wonderful labor of love. Congratulations on winning the Blue Ribbon!
