When each of us grandkids graduated from high school we got a quilt as did our first child! She was my role model and I wish she had lived to see my whole family. She did her quilting in the winters while grandpa cracked the walnuts he'd collected from farms all over their county. Here's a picture of her working on a rug with her arthritis-gnarled hands.
