Remember Me

Back in the mid-1800's a lot of people were moving west beyond the Mississippi and one of the traditional going-away gifts was a quilt made of album blocks.  People would make blocks with a center piece that could be signed and often words of encouragement were included.

I have a friend who is leaving this beyond-the-Mississippi place to return to Virginia and so I made this "remember me" mini-quilt.  I hope she likes it.

  1. Fortunate friend and I can well imagine she will LOVE it. I know I would. My mother quilted. Hers for me when I was 19 was a huge star, and done all by hand. The others for Katie's brothers were done by machine. She left too young at 53 years of age.
