Without Clara There Would Be No Evora

Clara’s Scrap Bag is my quilt that honors my grandmother Clara Ford. It is one of my early quilts that was finished in 2001. It is composed of ancient quilt blocks and antique fabrics. I tea dyed the quilt to give it more of an antique look.

My grandmother Clara was a quilter. I inherited eight of her quilts, and I cherish each and every one of them. Without Clara, there would have been no Evora (my mother). Without Evora, there would be no me. And without me, there would be no  India. This quilt is a reminder of my happy heritage.

Happy Mother’s Day!
