Quilt 90 - Great Grandchild Quilt #3

This quilt was made by the great aunts and again Great Aunt Betty did a counted cross-stitch block that said "When you sleep under a quilt, you sleep under a blanket of love". It has a tumbling block center with a festive rainbow binding.

This quilt needed to be a bit longer to fit the alphabet. Though the quilt top has the letters in the correct order, the label does have the alphabet as ABDCEFGHIJK. Our cousins remember us as the ABDC cousins, as we were named in alphabetic order except for the D and C changed spots in our alphabet. This quilt went on several trips with us in the finishing stages. We had it in Portland to visit with Edith and then took it to Pacific Beach and out to Ruby Beach also. Then it was sent on when A. was born. Now it is several years later. Happy Birthday to you, A. We love you.
