We are all sad when we lose a loved one. Especially a grandma because they are often the sweetest of all the people we know. In this case, the grandmother was a master quilter and so, at her funeral, the family displayed all of her quilts for her loved ones to enjoy.
Her name was Margaret Hubl and she was 89 years old when she passed. Her passion was making beautiful quilts and so when it was time to celebrate her life, the display of quilts made everyone feel a lot closer to her. It’s not often that we get to share in our grandmother’s passion to such an extent. These quilts not only helped fill the void of her absence on this day, but they reminded the family about how talented and special this woman was.
Take a look at how many she made:
I’m sure that her family was impressed to see them all on display like this. There were so many! Her granddaughter, Christina Tollman had this to say about them, “Never did I imagine how many there were. We covered almost every single pew in the church.”
They were a colorful display of her passion:
She began making them when her grandchildren started graduating from high school. She made one for each of them and it’s obvious how much thought she put into every one of them. Tollman says, “This is the love that Grandma made for each of us. This is what she made for each of us to wrap up in when we were hurt. When we miss her.”
Now, they have something to remember her by and to cuddle up with to keep her warm in their thoughts. Her family was honored to display her collection and take home a piece of her legacy after the funeral.
