Polly's Posting

Some of the comfort tops that my Grandmother Vera made down throught the years.

I know I've posted this picture of my grandmother Vera before but it's fitting to begin my post with it again.
I'm one of 63 grandchildren of Ralph and Vera Heatwole.   Over the years grandmother Vera made each of her grandchildren a comfort, giving most of them as a wedding gift.    This year I am on a treasure hunt asking each of my cousins to send me a picture of them with their comfort from grandmother.
My sister's and brother have all sent me their picture and I'd like to share them with you here.

~June Marie~
My oldest sister June is the oldest grandchild and she has used her comfort on her bed for many, many years.  It has seen better days but June plans on making a small memento for each of her children with these pieces.

I couldn't leave my mother out.   She made this velvet beauty!

Sometimes as I look at your photos and your blog I get envious that God didn't place me with a family like yours. He has His perfect way though. Those are lovely comfort quilts.
