And, of course, there's a story behind the block. There were actually 18 more blocks that she made but she sold them to a sewing group in Evanston, Iowa that made the blocks into a quilt. She loved the blocks but said that she sold them at a time when extra cash was needed. It would be so neat to someday meet that quilt but who knows where it might be now. I keep thinking I will make this into a pillow but I might do it as a small wallhanging instead so that it will have "longer life".
My mom is enjoying her visit. We have been to almost every thrift shop in a 25 mile radius, plus we've visited our daughter and family in Mankato and our son and girlfriend in Minneapolis. We've had some good meals and seen lots of pretty sites and taken lots of pictures. I'll have plenty to share when I get back to regular blogging next week. :-)
Have a good week!
