She made a block that reminds us of our 15 years of home-schooling....
.....a block for Hubby's career (I added the retirement date!).......
.......and one commemorating our first grandchild.
Log-cabin blocks display each of our wedding anniversary dates.
You can see other blocks in the quilt --
-- blocks for our daughters-in-law with their birth dates --
-- and blocks I added for our grandsons who joined our family while all the rest of the blocks were sitting in a sewing room cabinet, being a UFO, and waiting to be completed.
I didn't know until the end of the year that Anna was my "Secret Sister." The coffee cup block and cross-stitched stove block are very special because they symbolize the many, many hours our families spent visiting over the years.
This is such a special quilt. I am so glad it's not a UFO anymore. And not just because I wanted to check it off the list!
