more about her story
as I reached the bottom of the bag of quilt tops, I found her rusty needle, patterns and notes. The magazine is dated my birth month. I am holding the fabrics and needlework of a woman who was busy sewing the same year I was born. Somehow I feel connected in a weird way to her. Her patches include flour sacks, thin men's dress shirt fabric, and even some double knits! I still can't believe all this was going to be bulldozed into the ground.
