It may not be an Heirloom…

Dear Grandma, 

Each time I make a quilt, 
I learn a thing or two.

Like how not to place my borders
and choosing batting too.

You might recognize this fabric from your stash.
It was a gift from you to me.

This quilt may not be an heirloom,
(I made it with machines)
It’s made by me for you. 

Your Granddaughter

P.S.  I made a quilt for dad, larger of the same pattern.  I called it Chains of Luck.  The extra blocks needed a home, and as chance had it, I had enough to make a lap quilt for my grandmother.  I will be mailing this to her soon.  I owe my new found love of quilting to her.
