This is Milly, the Quilter.
Milly the quilter, a beloved friend to children in my classroom (and to me!) for ages, and the creator of many quilts designed by the children and hanging in places of prominence, has recently passed away. Her last words to me were, “Jennie, I am 88 years old. I have lived a wonderful life. What else is there?”
I will be posting a series of stories about Milly over the next few weeks. Her legacy needs to recognized. Her story, our story, is remarkable. Each quilt we created together was an adventure. So, hang onto your hats and enjoy the stories of Milly. Stay tuned for Part 1.
