My quilt's story began in 1940. A young woman with a dream graduated from Dress Design School. World War II began. Her dream was put on hold to work in an ammunition's plant. She played many roles in life. Her one constant was that of seamstress which she did with perfection. She died at age 97 when dementia/Alzheimers took their toll. Her design drawings and notebooks were among her treasured keepsakes. As her daughter, it is my dream to honor her memory through my quilting. Hoffman Fabrics had a dream, too. Transcending 80 years, all of our dreams converged!
