From quilter, Anita Brown: “My mother hand stitched these squares for a quilt for my daughter’s graduation in 1996. A few years ago I found them and ask my mother if I could could put the quilt together. I added the strips and the trim by machine and my mother and I hand quilted it. It took 20 years to make it but we are happy with how it turned out. ”
