This week at ABC Wednesday the letter of focus is Q - for Quilts.
My first thought was of the beautiful quilts I have received in the past year. One was a gift from a retiring teacher - she wanted me to have something to remember her. It is all hand-sewn and exquisite!.
The other is one I bought at a yard sale for $2.00!. (The top quilt with the dragonfly)
A good wash and it is as good as new.
In our area the Mennonites put on a yearly Quilt sale to raise money for their relief efforts. It has a huge turnout and the quilts sell for hundreds of dollars.
There is a story of how the Mennonites leave one mistake in each quilt so that it is not perfect - only God can be perfect. Not sure where this is from but it sounds true!
