My calendar shows that I had grand plans for this week’s post, but it got derailed with some bad news on Saturday. It’s with a heavy heart that I say that the patriarch of my father’s family passed early Saturday morning. I am so thankful that I was able to see my granddad in January when I traveled to Zion for my grandmother’s 90th birthday. When I asked what color quilt he wanted, he quickly replied “green and gold”. I am heartbroken that he will never see his quilt, but this week I’ll be “Army Strong”.
I started his quilt Monday night, green and gold as requested. The quilt will be full of paper pieced bordered stars. The pattern is from The Quilting Climber.
