Title Grandpa Makes Quilts
Description a fanner. He worked quickly and the rows were even and straight. In my spare time I bound the edges of the quitt. After that, he made thirteen more quilU> of various materials and sizes He purchased bright printed flannel for the linings. One day, his friend, a newspaper reporter took his picture as he held up his finished quilt In January he received a call from a lady in Brigham City, asking him to display a quilt in an annual quilt show. She had seen his picture in the newspaper He willingly responded to her invitation, and when we went to see the display his quilt was on a rack outside of an Indian wigwam which was set up in the center of a large auditorium This was appropriate for a quilt with a fleecy wool appearance In another comer of the room we found about a dozen quilts that men had made. Some of them were made from three-inch blocks carefully sewn together by hand Our grandchildren enjoyed sleeping under these warm quilts, and they often said to him "Grandpa, when will you make us another quilt9" CUon Fox «™ij/fc«y.jluj& quills for gnmddaldrtn.
