Aunt Dot was a powerhouse but a thoughtful one. When I finally started quilting— following the path she, my aunts, and grandmother had taken— I was proud to show her one of my first projects. She looked it over and said, “Nice. I didn’t know you could quilt this far apart without the batting shifting.” She was right of course! What a nice way to say I needed to supplement my quilting or I would be disappointed later. 😀
My skills improved with practice, and I was even prouder to show her later projects. She was obviously more impressed with these, but refrained from saying, “You finally got the hang of it!”
I was honored to receive quilt blocks, cut out materials, and partially pieced blocks from her these past two years. I know she was pleased to see the quilt I sent to my nephew made from those materials, as well as other projects I have started and will give to my niece and grandchildren. I am happy my grandkids were able to go with me to see her last year.
She was a treasure I will always love dearly. 💕

So many to share. One of my first memories is at her home, I was there with my mom. Aunt Dot was wearing a polka dot dress and giving me a Rolo. Another memory, Margie and I hiding under the table at the family Christmas Eve. Aunt Dot keep remarking that she had just put more black olives on the table. where were they going? She finally raised the tablecloth, looked under and said "You two", laughing. "Ok,. out now" We were busted but full of black olives.
