Now that I have a child it makes me sad to think that Auntie Lo will never get to hear the funny Grace stories. She won’t get to enjoy the pictures that I have taken yearly of my little munchkin to see how much she is growing up.
I realize its all part of life and growing up and being an adult, but it’s still not fun.
Anyhow, I thought I would share a quilt that I made for Auntie Lo. Auntie Lo loved anything that was Asian. She had her ENTIRE house decorated in oriental décor. I saw the kimono wall hanging and knew I had to make it for her. When I went for her funeral, the quilt was beautifully displayed on her living room wall (with a picture of me from high school right next to it).
I paper pieced the kimonos because I was pretty new to quilting and couldn’t figure out how to piece the crazy triangles. The binding is a little rough looking because I thought everything should be sewn on the machine. Some day I may take the binding off and “redo” it, but for the time being it will stay as is.
I love and miss you Auntie Lo!
