Recent family research turned up two unmet cousins who sent a new, to me, photo of my father’s mother Hattie and her siblings, grandmother and mother. How exciting to get something that I had never seen, and to see her at around age 10. Because I am developing a new program to teach called “Keepsake Patchwork: Preserving Memories,” it seemed this small wall hanging would be a good example for my presentation. Pieced in log cabin style, the fabrics are from the turn of the century, as well as the trims. These old fabrics are treasures to me, as are the photos printed on cotton cloth.
