Women’s Work

I just finished Neno’s Apron Quilt. Here’s a photo of the front and back. I hand stitched the pocket from one of the aprons on the back of the quilt. As I did I thought of the hand made aprons and of my own grandmother who taught me how to sew. It seemed a tribute to Tess’ grandmother Neno and the tradition of women passing down their skills.
I’ll show the quilt at the fiber festival at the Adirondack Museum next Saturday. And I’ll get to meet Tess and her family and deliver Neon’s Apron Quilt in person.

  1. Just when I think the quilt is perfect, you make it even more special..the pocket on the back is the bomb. I am one happy customer, thanks Maria, I love it, and thanks for sharing the development of Neno’s Apron Quilt. You have created a family heirloom.

  2. This is such a touching project, Maria, and you really did a beautiful job. I cannot wait to hear how the presentation goes. I know she will love it.
    PS….Love the living room paint color. Great choice.
