Like mother like daughter. Grandma Edna's example taught her daughter to fish and quilt.

Grandma Edna made a quilt as a wedding gift for each of her grandchildren. This quilt was saved and given as a wedding gift to a grandson 17 years after Edna's death. It is cherished. The quilt was pieced from feed sack fabric by Grandma Edna and quilted by Sister McKell's Spanish Fork, Utah Relief Society.

The quilt rack was hand made by Garland Lee REASOR (1917-2004)
