Well, I love the quilt!! Beautiful!
I cannot enter the contest because I don't know my grandparents' names, much less my great grand parents. (Not as dramatic a story as you can imagine). I wish the winner(s) all the best and thank you for such a great pattern! I adore the story too!

Their names were Susanna, Columbia called Lum, and Gussie. The fourth is unknown. My Mom's Dad left when she was 6 months old and we have never found the family. I don't remember them. I've heard stories of Grandma "Lum" dipping snuff.....giggle.

Kori said...

Love this pattern and that fabric stack! I have never known my great grandmother's name! Never realized it until now... But my (maternal) grandmother was Ina and if she were still alive she would be 112 and I am 35. So she was closer in age to a great gma - does that count?:-)

Kate said...

What a wonderful quilt and a wonderful tribute to your great grannie.

I know the names of two of my great grannies- one was Mary (on my mother's side) and one was Frieda (on my dad's side).

I never knew them but my middle name is Mary.

Thanks for the giveaway!

poppyinpink said...

You know until now I didn't realise that I dont know many of my Great Grandmother's names..I feel strange about that fact. The only one I can tell you is Violet Beuregarde (middle name). Thanks, I'll make a point of trying to find out, because a little flame of curiosity has begun to burn and I will just have to find out. How about that! I will have to find out Great Grandfather's names too..if you never met them they didn't feature highly in our thoughts I suppose.:( Better late than never. (oh dear, that sounds glib) Thanks again!

KOcanQuilt said...

Hi, I actually don't know my great-granmother's names. Kind of sad and I think I will have to do some investigating. Especially since I remember visiting one of them!

Keitha said...

Two of my most talked about ggrandmothers were Eva Jane and Kate Edna. My mother talked about her granny Kate alot. She was a very prudish woman who was raised very strict. My mother remembers watching ggrandma comb her own long beautiful locks of dark auburn red hair and then braid it. Even when braided it would fall to her waist. I would've loved to have met this woman! Thx for the beautiful giveaway!

My great-grandmother's name was Alice and she was a quilter. And like Rachel's great-grandmother, she did everything by hand. She made both my sister and I a quilt before she passed away and it's the most precious thing I own.
