Grandma had 3 girls ( and 1 boy), and I am sure all of them know how to sew, I just don't think they do! They always told me it skipped a generation. Although I do remember my Mom helping me make a dress or three, towels, and tote bag, a swimsuit.... so sewing must not have skipped her as far as she thought it did. Between my Mom, Grandma and Annie across the street - I learned how to sew fairly well.
Good thing for me - my Mom saves everything. My Grandma passed away quite a few years ago, but I still have things that remind us of her. This Baby Quilt my Grandma made for me, and Mom kept it. She brought it to me, and now it is hanging in my house.
It is very soft a cuddly - maybe she destined me to be a quilter?
Oh and by the way - My Mom can sew!! I think she is on quilt 6 or 7 now... she is unstoppable! And she has even trained my Dad to buy fabrics for her.... smart gal.
