I had forgotten about the crazy quilt that we had when I was very, very little until I read your piece. Ours was made by my great-grandmother. It disappeared by the time I was a teenager; I wonder what happened to it? But as you described the quilt in your piece, I found myself nodding my head as I remembered that old black and purple (as I recall - I'm sure there were other colors as well) crazy quilt of my childhood. Good writing!
That's such a wonderful idea. And what a great way to preserve precious memories.
Well, after reading this imaginative capturing story, I too want to create such a masterpiece! What wonderful fond memories, now...so very cherished. I so wish you were the one who had this quilt but making new memories for precious little ones is a beautiful tribute to your loving Grandma!

Stories of quilts usually are stories of love--this was no exception. Being a quilter, I truly enjoyed this piece as the grand-daughter shared her memories.
Congratulations Karen on your EC! I just knew it was a winner!!
