Now I was given this quilt many years ago and it has held up through many moves, to college, back home, back to college, and back home again. From apartment to apartment, city to city and it has weathered the storm wonderfully. Out of all my quilts and blankets it is still my most favorite to curl up with and talk about keeping you warm! So many memories are in this quilt. I look at it and remember going to Grandma Brownies house with my two cousins to learn how to bake a pie from scratch. Learning from both Grandma Brownie and my Grandma Jackie (my dad's mom and her mom) Playing Kings on the Corner on the card table in the middle of the living room. Family get togethers when my cousins and I hid out in her spare bedroom and gossiped all day long. And her famous banana bread that she made my dad and his brothers and sister for christmas every year! It makes me all warm and fuzzy inside remembering those times. Both Grandma Brownie and Grandma Jackie are greatly missed!
I just wanted to share a bit with everyone today as I was feeling a bit nostalgic after pulling this out last night :)
