This crazy quilt was made for a show entry in 2008 titled 'Town and Country'. I made my "Barn Quilt" using old photographs, notions, and trinkets from my ever growing stash of things I just couldn't throw away. Thank goodness I can't pitch such valuable junk!!!
Each block tells a little story that saves a piece of my family history. The little coin purse with the R was found in my great grandmother Pearl Reynolds button jar.
This block includes a picture of my dad and aunt with their 4H projects. The ribbon was from my son's 4H days, and the pin at the bottom was mine. 3 generations of 4Hers!
Creating the Barn Quilt gave me a chance to learn more about family history. My uncle was able to tell me stories about some of the pictures and identify people that I had no idea who they were in some of the photos. With this quilt, I have saved some memories.
