Q: Choosing a Pentax prime lens

A: Do you know?

My aunt loved making quilts by hand. When our children were in preschool, I sewed many of their clothes, and had lots of scraps left over. My aunt asked for them so she could make a quilt for my mother (her sister), so it would have scraps of the clothes of her grandchildren. It was a beautiful and wonderful surprise, and was treasured by my mother until her passing in 1999. At that time it was passed down to me. Since then, my aunt has also passed on. When I look at this quilt, it evokes many memories; of sewing the clothes for our children, of watching my aunt piece it together, and of my mother's pride in this wonderful heirloom. It hangs on the wall over our bed.

THANKS FOR THE SPOTLIGHT, MAURA!

    Just love this! What a wonderful keepsake from a time when if you needed something, you made it. No going to the shops and buying it. Every scrap of material was hoarded, just it case it was needed. Every old jersey was cut up and used for something else. A case of make do and mend. Your narrative is a treasure in itself.

    I love home made quilts - My sister is a quilt maker as well and I have a 4 generation quilt My Great Grandma Started for me - then my grandma worked on it and then my mom and then my Sister finished it --- only took it I was around 28 or 30 years old to get it - and no I moved and I forgot where I put it :0(

    Nice capture - I am going to enjoy following your photos.

    You certainly have my vote, this is such a touching story which kind of reminds me of my own Grandma, Aunt and Mother's sewing skills, I still have some sentimental hand knitted baby girl clothes they made for myself when I was expecting my first born. I cannot part with it, until I am a Grandma one day that is.
