A grandma’s memory honoured

A friend sent this link to me – suggesting it might be a great topic for my blog.

I agreed.

A family decided to drape all the pews in the church with quilts the quilter had made.  From this picture, you can see that she made a LOT of quilts – with a good variety of colours.  How cool is this?

Orca Bay

IMG_1524All the blocks for Orca Bay are made.  Yes, all of them!  Oops, not quite!  I mean, all of them for the main part of the quilt.  The border blocks are in progress as leaders and enders and should be completed by the time the main part is webbed together.

Yes! Light at the end of the tunnel!

  1. How neat to have all of her quilts in there! You will love your Orca Bay quilt, I made it and it is one of my favorites!


  2. I think this is a lovely tribute. It is a great way to honor her memory. Congrats on getting part of Orca Bay done – every little (or large) bit helps!


  3. Hi Gail,
    I had seen that story about honoring grandma – what a sweet idea. Wow, you have really gotten far with the blocks for Orca Bay! We’ll be seeing it all together in no time. ~smile~ Roseanne


  4. That is the neatest thing EVER! I have thought about how much I quilt and wondered if people will just think of my quilts when I die. I have decided that I hope instead they will remember how I treated them and our relationship rather than the worldly things I have done.


    • Yes, Deena – how we treat others is very important in our relationships, but giving of ourselves is also part of that! I too, do not want people to just think about my quilts when I am gone!


    • Thanks, Terry! Can you imagine if our family had done that with Grandma’s quilts & afghans? That would have been very cool! Orca Bay is a neat pattern … but very very time consuming! Happy Quilting, Cuz! 🙂
