enlarge 268KB, 1024x768 13 Made for Mother and Daddy's 40th anniversary. I didn't finish it on time due to Andrew's arrival! They received it in 1985, not 1981! Each block selected for special meaning...family tree, Keystone state, house on the hill, cross and crown.
This is a current photo. Unfortunately, the quilt was laundered in hot water and strong detergent at Epworth when they were in Personal Care. Faded badly. Compare to scans of 1984 negatives in following photos.
