QUILT TOP NEWS!!!!
i have started sewing some of my favorite blue japanese stuff together…. i really really enjoy sewing squares and rectangles together…just matching up sizes, pinning it together and then stitching…. i am in no hurry but it seems to go so fast and then suddenly……….. i have a quilt top….
“Yes, there is the PATCHWORK QUILT! looking to the uninterested
observer like a miscellaneous collection of odd bits and ends of calico,
but to me it is a precious reliquary of past treasures;
a storehouse of valuables, almost destitute of intrinsic worth;
a herbarium of withered flowers; a bound volume of hieroglyphics,
each of which is a key to some painful or pleasant remembrance…”
–Annette (pseud.), “The Patchwork Quilt,” 1845….(from the book…”This Old Quilt”)
