colors on the line
When we found out an old home nearby was going to be bulldozed, Matt put on his gloves, grabbed his hammer and crowbar and headed out to the property in a hurry before the demolition crew arrived. It was already picked over but the treasures he brought home in a couple truckloads are priceless! Mason jars full of rusty square nails, cedar posts, weathered wood planks, mattress coils and springs, kitchen junk like enamel pots and pans and a huge pile of quilt tops. We intend to honor the creator of these cast-offs and quilt them ourselves. Can you imagine that they were going to just dump all this into the Earth? Before we arrived there were pie safes, depression glass and vintage buttons. Be still my beating heart.
