This year the Iowa Suthers created the quilt that is our tradition to give away at the annual gathering in our home town of Blaine, Kansas. The tradition was that my sisters and I got together every year, made a quilt in a few days while catching up with each other; then, usually around Labor Day our families got together for what I named “The Four Sisters Party” and the quilt was given to whoever’s name was pulled out of the pot. We did this for 25 years. In the 26th year, my daughter and daughter-in-law, Jenea and Mary Grace made a quilt for the annual gathering for someone to win. This is our 27th year, and my brother, Jerry’s, kids did it…….Jenea traveled up there to guide them through the project.
After our twentieth year, I did a book on lulu.com/merrygee that tells the story of how the project came about and also includes the photos of who won the quilt those first twenty years. I probably ought to update it one of these days……click on the link below to take a look.
