Other Notes: First quilt made after she lost central vision in one of her eyes. Puts a black cat on all her quilts (had a black cat called Smudgie), lost vision and wanted to see what she could do at the club at Sewickly Academy. She gave her friend a ride to the class thus starting her quilting hobby. This was Virgina's first quilt after she lost vision in her first eye.
