My new great-great nephew was born on January 20, 2023.

The “Jar Quilt” I made for him tells the story of his Great Grandmother, my sister, and Great Grandfather. Joanne was the canner in the family and always had a big garden. Ray did the plowing and weeding in the garden and helped with the canning. On the back of the quilt, I used a fabric panel that was a picture of a cartoon-type mechanic because Ray always drove with no music on, so he could hear the engine to make sure it was running in top condition. He could fix any type of engine and enjoyed mowing the grass with his John Deere tractor.
