My grandfathr was a WWII vet and a bricklayer by trade. When RA took his body and froze his joints so badly& in such distorted ways, one would guess he could do nothing with them at all, but use them as clubs. Despite that, he designed and sewed by hand, quilts he gave to each of his grandchildren. His stitch work, would rival any sewing machine. So tiny & perfectly placed. It was an astounding process to watch as he use his club hands and his teeth to get it done. Today as I face my diabilities, I think back on this fine gentleman, & wanted to make him a tribute of quilts in wood. So here’s my humble attempt grandad. You’ve been gone for 50 yrs, and I still have your quilt. Thank you
