Grandma Claudi had 8 children:
I wonder if she ever would have imagined her great, great, great grandson nestled in its folds when she quilted this. She held my great Grandma in her arms. She was Ma's grandma.

"...you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name." Psalm 61:5
No one in our family is perfect. But that God has given us the heritage of men and women who have worked hard with their hands, loved their families, and served Christ- that is an unbelievable blessing to these generations that come after them. We are blessed by the harvest of the fields they have sown.
May we walk in their footsteps...warmed by the work of their hands.
