Susan Harriett Littler was her name. From 1890 to 1916 she had 10 children. Eight children survived, one boy and seven girls. On a day in September 2015, six surviving granddaughters came together for a "cousins' reunion" and were reminiscing about their mothers’ mother. Gathered were Johnnie, Carole, Nina, Martha, Sue, and Nancy. It soon became obvious that had I been there at the turn of the Century, Susan was someone, like so many others in her time, that all women would love to have known. To set the chronology, it is important to first let you know that Susan was born in 1869.  She married Thomas Dutch Likins in 1890 and had her first of many children a year later, a baby boy.  The last child was born in 1916 when Susan was 47 years old.

Did you ever wonder where your love of quilting came from? If you were lucky enough to have a mother or grandmother to teach you to sew and quilt, it probably never crossed your mind. However, if you had a mother who wouldn't even sew on a button and grandmothers that you never knew, how you developed the love of quilting might be a mystery. I know it is to me.
