In the early 1990's I had started reacquainting with cousins I hadn't seen in 20+ years. We were delighted when we found out quilters are we all. After going to California to a Mennonite quilt auction we decided to all make six blocks, exchange them and make a Cousin's Quilt. Thanks to Betty's block which has counted cross stitch in it that says "Life is a Patchwork Quilt Made of Treasured Memories, Stitched for cousins by Betty 1996" I know when we made this quilt. We showed our finished quilts at a reunion and quilt retreat at Diamond Lake, Oregon, several years later. Blocks by Lorna, Marlys, Betty, Ione, Cindy and Adele.
