In September Travellers Rest Plantation and Museum in Nashville TN had their Trades Festival. Again I presented the Grandmother Stories Quilt on two beautiful fall days to hoards of school children.

Each of these 20 blocks represents one of 20 of my grandmothers, and each has a very short story that memorializes her life. This is a perfect way for me to use my family history research.

Below: The students needed a hands-on activity so I created these patchwork puzzles – they were very popular!
