at 93 yrs young - this photo taken July 2007My grandma is 95 years old. She was married at 17. Grandma got her first and only sewing machine a Singer treadle in the 1930s. She has not sewn very much in the past five years due to poor health. Grandma lives in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan Canada (434 miles or 700 kilometres west and north of me). When I went to visit her in August 2009, she insisted on giving me this quilt.
What is neat about Grandma's quilts is that she never buys fabric to make a quilt. She cuts up old clothes mostly fortrell and polyester then sews it all together on her old treadle.
She pieced the back together with scraps as well.
It is not the prettiest fabric, but I think it is beautiful as it is the last quilt my Grandma Rose will ever make for me.
