Weekly Photo Challenge II: Zig Zag (Quilt)

Published as part of the Weekly Photo Challenge

Before the week is up, I’d like to publish a photo of my quilt. Why?

When I graduated from University, my grandmother gave this quilt as a gift, but it’s a special type of quilt. Not only my grandmother made it, but it has a piece of clothe from most members of the family. Parts of my great-grandmother’s dress, of the dress my aunt left maternity with my cousin, a pocket from my uncle’s first pair of pants, my mom’s dress when she was 15 years old… well, you get where this is going.

It’s more than just a quilt… it is a quilt that my grandmother made that tells the history of our family! Pretty neat, isn’t it?

    • I had to draw a little map to make sure that I can remember exactly which quadrant holds which piece. There are 79 members portraid in it, including my grandma’s great-granddad…

      Thank you for the lovely comment!

      • What a clever and great idea to have the map. You must make sure that someone knows about the map so all the family lore is not lost in the future.

    • Yeah! It is! Hopefully it will become one of those things to keep forever… I feel a bit iffy to use it, so it doesnt get dirty and I dont have to wash it… from time to time, I hang it outside…… difgicult to know what to do!
