One of our DAM Girls, Lori Miller Designs, is running a Quilt Block of the month (BOM) this year. Starting in February, each month she is offering a FREE download of one of the blocks of her Grandma Town Row by Row Quilt.
Lori shared that her row by row quilt was a labor of love to celebrate her Iowa roots. She spent her childhood visiting her Grandparents on their farm just west of Des Moines in Earlham, Iowa. Her quilt is a special tribute to her dear Grandma.
Lori says “When my sisters, brother and I were little and my parents would drive us to my grandparents farm, my brother would yell, ‘We are going to Grandma Town!’ It was a loving tribute that stuck. This little quilt is full of those reminders of the farm and of Grandma, who loved to garden and loved to cook. Each block is a sweet memory of my youth growing up on that country farm.”
Hurry, her first block, a forget me not flower is free for download on craftsy only through Saturday, February 28th.
You can read more about it on her blog, lorimillerdesigns.com.
