Today, for Kelli's Show & Tell Friday, I would like to share something very special to me.
This is my favorite quilt in the world. My grandma made it for me when I was very small and I have fond memories of picnicing with it in our backyard as well as making forts with it in our family room. Believe me when I say this quilt has been well used over the years!!!
My grandma made Sunbonnet Sue quilts for all her granddaughters and Sunbonnet Sam (often known better as Overall Andy) quilts for all her grandsons. I'm sure this must have taken her quite a while, but she did it because she loved her grandchildren so.
My grandma was a Christian, and when she died in 1993, she went to Heaven to be with the Lord. Even though my quilt is wearing thin and doesn't warm nearly as well as it used to, when I wrap up in it and I see the stitches she lovingly made, I can't help but think, "I wonder if Grandma ever knew that her great granddaughter would be wrapped up in this quilt one day, too? I wonder if she knew it would cover her granddaughter's bed when she was grown and married? I wonder if she knew how much I would miss her?"
What a great legacy she left. I am blessed to have this beautiful quilt and blessed to have such fond memories of my dear grandma.
