Crazy Memento Quilt Block #9

Growing up, I was so very fond of my cousin Kim's paternal grandmother.  She was always so happy to have us kids around.  I remember she made awesome refrigerator pickles which I loved!  She also measured us kids on the wall in her kitchen to see how tall we were all getting.

Block #9 of my crazy memory quilt is devoted to my cousin's grandmother:

Grandma loved African Violets so I knew I had to use some violets on this block.  These are velvet and they were given to me by friend Lula as were the velvet leaves.

When Grandma passed away, I asked Kim if she had a little something of her grandmother's that I could have to remember her by.  Kim gave me the brooch that Grandma wore on her coat.  Here's a photo of Kim's grandparents:
