Great Grandmother’s quilt

Offers warmth as degrees drop

Stitch by stitch with love.

Art Prescription:  We are so lucky to have about five quilts made by my ancestors. Both my mom’s mother and my dad’s parents quilted, and this is back in the day where it was all done by hand! I remember my grandmother’s living room being transformed into a quilting bee as the furniture was moved back, the  quilt racks went up, and she and my aunt would sit and sew for hours. Today I did a watercolor sketch of a section of quilt just for fun.  Look around your house to find inspiration!
