My daughters have one great grandparent... her name is Mildred but we call her Deeda. She's 96 years young and is such an amazing person.

I only remember one great grandmother....her name was Grandma Ray (short for Rachel). Mom wanted to name me after her, but there were too many Rachel/Rebecca's in the family and she didn't want me confused with any of them.

Stacey said...

my great grandma was my memiere to me, and her name was Lydia. She passed away a few years ago now, a couple days before her birthday, and she was supposed to go to the Casino for her birthday, with her $5 roll of coins. They ended up sending them to heaven with her :O} She was something special, and boy do I miss her. my oldest daughter and her were five generations, so i do have her actual framed photo I gifted her with when we had them pictures taken 13 years ago. And my family also gave me here statue she kept on her special shelf. (one of a kind from her keepsake. thanks for sharing about your mal rachel!! and love your pattern

Quilt Monkey said...

Oh no! I don't know my great grandmothers' names! My mother's family is unknown to us, and my dad's father was estranged from his family. My father's mother came from Australia and I don't know her mother's name. However, my grandmother's name was Viola, which is my middle name! Sheesh - long story. Thanks for having the giveaway!

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

I never knew my grandparents, so I don't know what my great grandmothers names were. Sad, isn't it? I was a late in life baby for my own parents, so I never learned a lot about my heritage. I do know that my hubbys great grandma was Grandma Pope ;-)

Vroomans' Quilts said...

I knew both of my maternal great grandmothers. Cuerenna was my grandpa's mom and she was in a nursing home from the time I was old enough to remember until she died. My grandma's mom was Nellie and I was very blessed to know that woman for almost 30 years. She was also and amazing quilter!

My great grandmother's name was Sally. Such a cute pattern. So Rachel! Jenn
purpleheartorijennals@yahoo.com

Kristen said...

My first great-grandmother's name was Astrid, which is my middle name since I was born the day before her birthday. She came to the USA from Norway and some of her recipes are still used regularly as family favorites. My second great-grandmother was named Nellie Mae ... her heritage can be traced back to the founders of Maryland (the state flag bears the coats of arms of my 15th-great-grandparents) and even Charlemagne. My third great-grandmother was Emma Jane, a British woman, called Jennie for short, and if I'd had had a daughter, I would have named her for Emma Jane, although my mother never liked her. My fourth great-grandmother we know very little about since she came to the USA from Poland in the 1800s and we have very few family records about the women on that side of the family but we think her name was Mary. But to my knowledge, not one of my ancestresses was a quilter.

Thanks for the chance to win - the pattern is beautiful!

DianeY said...

I guess I had 4 and I guess I'd have to look up 1 of them!. The others are Johanna, Mary & Irene

LOVE this quilt! My great-grandmothers names were Gladys and Fern. They were both so wonderful! I spent many hours sewing and embroidering with Gran-Gran (Fern).

Rosemary said...

I wish I knew my great-grandmother's name but I probably never will. My father came over from Portugal when he was 17 over 100 years ago. I was close to my mother's mom (Mary) but never met her mother. My mother's parents were also from Portugal so we never met their parents or really talked about them...Too sad. I do have recipes from Grandma Mary that I still use today. I never saw her sew ... unfortunately but my mother did.

Amanda said...

Hannah Byrd and Reta were my great grandmothers. :)

Sonia B said...

Beautiful. One of my great-grandmother's names was Eliza. Thanks for the chance

Nancy D. said...

I don't know my great-grandmothers' names -- they were from the late 1700s and early 1800s, in another country. Sad, huh?

Chelsea said...

What a gorgeous quilt!

This name the great grans thread is almost harder than the usual guess the correct statements mode of entering! My paternal great grand was Izabel, or maybe Isabella, but she went by M I R. I tried calling to find out the name of my maternal great grand but no one's home. My mum has always called her Nana, obviously not her given name. I never met either of them, which is a pity.

RhonniG said...

My greatmothers' name was Grace. I have an unfinished quilt top made by her.

Kathleen Grace said...

I never knew either of my great grandmothers, but my grandmother taught me to sew, ripping out stitches that weren't perfect. I had to do it right! Grandma (Ethel) didn't quilt, but I do have a crazy quilt made by her mother, and some quilt squares that were passed down and that I am working into a corner of a string quilt I'm working on. Seems sewing ran in the family:>) I love this pattern, thanks for the chance to win!

Melissa said...

Great pattern:) My G-grandmothers were named Chloe and Nettie. These are the two that were still living when I was born:) I actually don't know the names of the other two:( I will call Mom and ask her; she remembers stuff like that!

Deb said...

I love the pattern, but I have no clue of any of my great-grandparents' names. I just called my mom (she's 83) and asked her. She said they died before she was born but she vaguely recollected Lizzie. So, Lizzie it is. All we ever heard was Big Papa and Big Mama. I hope I'm never called that! :)

Jeanne said...

My Great Grandmother's name is Evelyn and now it is part of my daughter's name. We always called her Grandma Mutt though. That is not part of my daughter's name. :)

Briawna said...

i am one of the only greats (hee,hee) to know and remember a few my great-grandmothers. Their names were Eunice (she went by her middle name, Eva), Kathleen, Georgia (Yeah!!), and Ruby. I knew all but one of them. My oldest daughter was almost named Georgia but my husband had an aunt with that name that he didn't love. :-) I still look at my little girl and think she'd be a perfect Gigi. I love this pattern and, of course, the Ruby line. I think I need to make this quilt with this fabric to remember my great-grandmothers! thanks.

Lauradublin said...

My great grandmothers name was Claire.

Kay said...

Love this quilt & it is so pretty in the fabrics you used. My great grandmother's name was Claire.

Jayne said...

Beautiful quilt. My great=grandmother's name was Irema.

Cindy said...

Having four great grandmothers you would think that I would know one of their names. All I know is what they were called. My mother's paternal grandmother was revered to as "Little Nanny". I'm thinking that can't be her given name. My father's paternal grandmother was called "Mommy". I have her china....but not her name...although wouldn't it be odd to name a child Mommy. It sounds like something Steve Martin would do.

Thanks for reminding us of the great ladies from our pasts.

Missy said...

I believe my great grandma's name was.... Great Grandma Owens. I'm not sure of her first name to be honest.

Beth-Sugarsmacks Boutique said...

My great grandma was named Della. If I'd of had a girl I would have chosen it either as the first or second name. I think it's beautiful. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

Absolutely adore this, Rachel. It's obvious there was a lot of love in the design. My special great-grandmother was named Julia. She was half Hopi Indian and the coolest lady. They say I look like her. :)

What a lovely tribute to your great grandmother Georgia! It's a beautiful quilt. Can't wait to add the pattern to my collection.

The great-grandmother I remember was Edith. She always had peanut butter & saltine crackers for us to snack on :).

Lovely, lovely quilt. (And since I'm from Atlanta "Georgia", it's only fitting that I win one).

My grandmother's names were (get these weird names): Oleater and Ione (pronounced I-Own).

That is such a lovely pattern in that fabric collection especially. Would love to win the pattern since I have been transplanted here from the East Coast. I've never met any great grandparents OR grandparents except my mom's mom (Madeline). But I was told that her mother's name was Barbara.

My great-grands were Merry Mae, Pauline, Mattie (Martha), and Maude.

Love the pattern, love the question.
