I'd like to take a moment and admire Colleen's artistry here--see how the mountains line up--and it doesn't matter who stands on which side? Brilliant! All I had to do was add some texture.

My aunts weren't quite sure if Belle (my great grandmother) had made this top for Fern (my Grandma)
This is Fern and Belle, 1992
There is a mixture of hand and machine quilting on this quilt--and I think the blocks were pieced by hand and machine too, and it was originally hand quilted, and has been repaired by machine. It needed a few repairs when I got it, and my good friend Yvonne did that hand stitching for me.
I am pretty sure my Grandparents had outfits made with this blue floral below--but maybe Fern shared her scraps with her mother?
Nope...I found the photo of my Grandparents that this fabric reminded me of....it's close but not the same.
Slim and Fern
And camo :) Some things are always (never?) in style.
