Grandfather Quilt

Grandfather Quilt

from 300.00

For as long as I can remember, my grandfather was a tinsmith. He had a garage full of traditional tools used to stamp, shape and mold sheets of tin into beautiful wall sconces, pendants, bowls and mobiles. 

My parent's house is full of pieces he's made, but I hadn't noticed this decorative painted tin panel tucked away on a shelf. The pattern, inspired by a traditional Indian design my grandfather had seen in Santa Fe, screamed "QUILT ME!". So I did. 

Keeping the tradition of craft alive, whatever craft it may be, is a huge part of why I love quilting. Mastering a craft, especially one that has been passed down through generations as part of your culture, is what keeps that culture rich and connected with its history and its future.
