#atozchallenge, Q is for Quilt…

Olivia was mystified after finding a cyanide capsule inside the opal ring she’d inherited from her beloved French grandmother.  But when a letter arrived from another law firm stating Bridgette had left a package that she must travel to France to claim, Liv was downright perplexed.  And excited to travel abroad!

The package containing an heirloom quilt was indeed a surprise, though not nearly as much as the deed to property in Vichy sewn into a seam, along with what appeared to be her grandmother’s French marriage certificate to someone when she was 17 — six years before she’d met Olivia’s Grandpa…

My theme this year is 100 word fiction.  (So, no, don’t count this line!)  This is a continuation of O is for Opal which you can find here.

  1. Oh… you definitely need to continue this story!

    When I was writing last night, my son suggested that I bitch about quilts. Only because it was hard to come up with a Q… but I laughed when I saw your post title!

    1. I really wanted to do quantum leap, but I know nothing about physics, so this made more sense! 😉

  3. What little we know of the one’s we love. I know this is fiction, but it reminded me of a great aunt who once pulled me aside and revealed that she had sewn a thousand dollars in the hem of her coat. Her husband had stashed money under the floorboards of their modest home. I always wonder where it went after their deaths. This is what makes life exciting – the mystery.

    1. Thank you! I have a friend who found out long after her father had died and his house had been sold that he used to hide money in the basement walls. Nothing she could do about it then!

      1. Ha ha – best laid plans gone awry. That generation were afraid of banks, so had to find alternatives.

      2. I’m sure that’s it. My father-in-law kept money for their funerals in his chest freezer! Scared us to death that he had thousands in there…
