When the last of Nan's things were being given away, there was a small pile of nightgowns and robes left. No one really wanted them so I took them home with the idea that I'd make a quilt out of them. It took several years of work, a long stint in storage, and some fast paced binding to get them finished, but I finally cut the last string on Wednesday night. I made two wonky patchwork lap quilts. I learned a lot and made of lot of mistakes on them, but I think Nan would see that as a good thing.
I decided to give the quilts to Michael's cousins, Traci and Leslie, as thanks for all they did to take care of Nan in her last days. Thursday I got to take the quilts down to them and it's my hope that the blankets will bring back lots of good memories of their grandma.
