Iowa and Grandma's 100th
Pella, IA. Much of my family is from this area, and specifically its where my Maternal Grandmother lives. Jaarsma's Bakery in the background on the right, best Dutch bakery ever.
This is essentially what I created for the table center pieces. A white square of cloth with a purple or pink circle that has been pinked on the edges. I sewed the circles down. The ultimate plan is to cut up the squares and make a quilt out of the pieces. Waste not - want not. The jar is filled with fabric scraps in the same colors as the circles and flowers. In each jar I also put a stake with a verse from Proverbs 31 in the Bible. These are verses about a virtuous and Godly woman.
