CQJP2013 January block for   Leave a comment


My completed January block for CQJP2013, my yearlong crazy quilt project titled Pansies for Remembrance in honor of my 95 year old mother-in-law, Grace, who has Alzheimer’s Disease. The photo of Grace and her late husband, Will, is before they were married at her sister’s wedding. The dragonfly is beaded from a kit by Kathy Shaw of shawkl designs. She has an etsy shop.
