Jenny Doan’s household tree is stitched with needle and thread.
Look again two generations, and also you’ll discover a pair of nice aunts, grasp seamstresses who traveled from Sweden to work for the acclaimed New York artist, George Inness.
They stitched and saved to pay passage to America for all the household–together with Jenny’s grandmother, who was simply seven years outdated on the time.
Jenny says, “Once I see these spools, I’m reminded that stitching is a part of my genetic make-up; it modified our household without end!”
This week, Jenny is stitching up a fantastic Massive Spools quilt in honor of all who actually love stitching. And also you guessed it: This quilt is fast, simple, and “sew” de-light-ful!
