Honoring 100 Years Well Lived

Honoring 100 years well lived.
I just finished a quilt in honor of a lovely lady who lived to 100 years of age. To commemorate her full life, I designed a quilt of 100 pieces with the most significant events indicated by embroidery and symbols.

The initials of each child, grandchild and great-grandchild are shown on the piece that signifies the year of their birth, and her marriage, a trip to the UK and her husband's passing are also shown. I even included her gloves and the fur from the hood of her coat.

(Please forgive my less-than-stellar photo - I did the best I could with the lighting conditions and my abysmal photography skills!)
