I thought I would republish this Easter post from several years ago (2010, was I really blogging that long ago?). Enjoy! And Happy Easter to all of you,
I think of this quilt as the Easter quilt. I also think of this as Grandma’s magnum opus quilt. She did her finest work here and was justifiably proud of this quilt. The work here is exceptionally fine. This piece is large, measuring approx 72″ x 90″, making it difficult to get a good picture. I took this one from the second story of the kids clubhouse looking down!
It ended up in my husband’s hands due to the fact that purple has always been his favorite color. Here are closeups of the individual blocks. Take a journey with me through the life of Jesus as told by the blocks of this beautiful old quilt:
Thank you for coming to a lost a broken and broken world to live with us. Thank you for dying on the cross and rising again that one day, we might live with you in heaven. Amen.
