Remember Elizabeth Jane

Years ago I did a scrapbook page about my great-great grandmother, Elizabeth Jane (Reynolds) Lyle. Later I printed it on fabric and lightly quilted it to a tote bag. The printing was on an ink jet printer and has faded a bit over time. Still, it is one of my treasures. Perhaps it'll give someone ideas to use with their own designs.
