ABC Wednesday > Q is for Quilt
When my parents passed, they left an 11 room house that was full to the brim with stuff. I couldn't keep everything but I had a hard time letting go of some of their things. A few years later, as Mrs. Snapper and I prepared to leave Tennessee for British Columbia, I had to pare down big-time. There wasn't room for furniture so what I ended up with was a very few smaller items and in choosing them, I focused on stuff they'd had their hands on: My dad's tools, some of mother's kitchen gear, things like that. This quilt was one of mom's last projects. She got the cover sewn but then her illness won the battle and she never completed it. Shortly before we were to start packing up the big yellow truck, I bought some batting material and found some church ladies to finish it. This isn't the only quilt we brought to Gabriola but it's the one we sleep under every night.
