Margaret Hubl used her quilts to communicate her love for her family, and her family used them at her funeral to honor her memory.

The picture really says it all. it’s hard to believe that all those quilts were made by a single person – they represent an incredible amount of work. Clearly a labor of love. Displaying them this way was a wonderful memorial to Ms. Hubl.

One of the best tributes I’ve seen, and the best news I’ve had today! Made my think of my Grandma Triplett. Thanks.

My wife made baby quilts for our three kids, 13 grandkids, 16 greatgrand kids and two nieces.. The quilts had a layer of batting and a picture of an animal which she quilted around it so that they were raised. One of the married nieces still uses hers even though it is a tattered mess. We now have 21 ggkids in the pen and one in the chute but GGMa can no longer quilt as her stitching is very small and her eyes and hands won’t work.
Dee Smith says
Wonderful choice by her family,
beautiful quilt work, she must be proud of both!

What a wonderful way to honor such a talented long-living woman. I’m an artist and hope that when I’m gone, my children and grandchildren will feel that I’ve left my mark on the world.
