Irene's Quilt


This is the completed black quilt, finally finished the binding this afternoon and have named it Irene's Quilt for a friend whose husband passed away unexpectedly. She has a deep faith despite the darkness in her life right now.
My day was the usual chores, so much to do outside, clipping dead tree limbs, raking, on and on, but I took a walk to check on some bear prints, had a third bear on Saturday, a young black bear in the early morning, one look at us and he was off and running which is good since it's still bear hunting season. Found a deer antler that Jim had been looking for, I was very pleased with myself since I never find one. And I also found an arrowhead, we have lots on the property since it was once used by the native Indians for camping and still have several intact teepe rings where they set up camp.

  4. I love Irene's Quilt! I have a match box of arrow heads from my grandfather that he found when farming. He also had a cigar box but when we cleaned out my grandma's house when she died we couldn't find it - so we dont' know what happened to it. I'm glad I got the matchbox of them!
