You may recollect that last year my Grandpa Wilbur turned 90, and I made him a small wall hanging. Well for his 80th birthday (and the 80th birthday of my other grandpa) my mom, sister, and I made him a memory quilt. We were all fairly beginner quilters then, so made some decisions we wouldn't make again, but it was a wonderful project and I think a meaningful one. It's still hanging in his house. Unfortunately, one of the beginner mistakes we made was not taking any pictures when the quilt was first made, so all I have are these pictures taken just a couple of years ago while the quilt was hanging in his somewhat dark hallway. And of course as soon as you look at them you realize that we didn't put enough quilting over the photographs so they're sort of saggy. You can get the idea anyway though.
Tennis and fishing were his two other big hobbies, and he played until sometime in his early 80s.
Here he is with my Grandma for their engagement picture, unfortunately I can't find this picture or the digital copy anymore. It's too bad because this year they are celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary!! Happy anniversary Grandma and Grandpa!!
This one is lots of pictures with the grandkids, that bottom left one is a special picture with my great-grandpa as well!
