'Old quilt makes for even more love shining back at me'
The writer has a round oak table in her kitchen bay window dedicated solely to violets, year round. Everyone who visits knows the violet table is for her violets, period, in memory of her grandmothers who always grew them. Using her creative talent, she took a family heirloom quilt, dared to trim it to fit under glass and under the violets and discovered it makes her smile even bigger. -EW

I found a round glass top for my old oak kitchen table that I keep my Violets on in memory of my grandmother's Audrey McBeath McKinley and Audrey Chelf Waggener.
I was going through some old quilts and one of them was in very bad shape. It was a quilt that my grandmother Waggener had given me years ago.
She had told me my great grandmother Etna Edith McCaffree Waggener made it out of old clothes that my mother Helen Fay Waggener McKinley and siblings had outgrown, or were not suitable to hand down.
I got my nerve up to cut, and on the backside discovered it had feed sack backing. It said 'Columbia'. I have had this quilt for around 38 years and I always looked at the front of it.
Now as I walk by my table of Violets I smile even bigger. Lot's of love shining back at me. --MB
