The Grandmother Connection

Grandmothers have made quilts for as long as there has been a quilt making tradition. That’s not too surprising. What may be new is how many thoroughly modern quilt makers have continued and enriched the tradition, adding quilts made for, and because of grandmothers.

Among the quilt makers with moving and illuminating stories: Therese May, Judy Warren, and Terri Hancock Mangat.
