I remember my Grandma saved all our old clothes and any material she could get her hands on. She made heavy quilts out of that patchwork. I was little and she would trust me to cut some squares for her. I still have my quilt that she made me. I’ve had that quilt for 56 years. That reminds me, I have one of her unfinished quilts I must finish and give it to my granddaughter.
