#15 - A Girl and Her Quilt

Machine pieced; machine quilted by Lynn Wheatley, South Royalton, Vermont

“This is a graduation gift for my niece, Lowry, who will be attending college this fall. The idea was for my mother-in-law, Virginia Schlabach, to help with the hand quilting but she passed away this past November after a brief battle with ovarian cancer. She was part of the Delectable Mountain Quilters and entered quilts over the years in the Billings Farm & Museum Quilt Exhibition. Virginia even made a quilt with my son Micah when he was in elementary school, entered the quilt and won. There are many qualities in Virginia that I see in her granddaughter. Lowry is spunky, smart, not afraid of getting dirty, hard-working, loves trucks and fixing them, a cowgirl at heart with her cowgirl boots (lots of them), loves horses, and is a story-teller like her grandmother Virginia. Congratulations Lowry!”
