    This is my string quilt top I just finished sewing together. I am appliquing the flower etc.
    I will put a 3" string border around the edge, then about a 5" black marble border around that.

    Another question: should I bind all that in a color, picked out ofthe strings, like red, or green or yellow?
    Or should I sew a lot of strings together end to end and use

    Dear God: Why do humans smell the flowers,

    Confessions of a Want-to-be Quilter - Introduction

    Memoirs of Carol S. Jackson, Evans, GA
    printed by the author

    Do we write about our problems so that they will live in infamy? Or do we accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative, giving ourselves, and the world, the false illusion that we are more than what we really are? By recording our mistakes, we record history - lest man, (or quilter, be it man, woman or child,) not repeat our mistakes. ...

    As the years passed, I would often sit on Mothers bed while she sewed on her treadle machine. I usually read, but sometimes I’d embroider, or make another square for my crotchet table cloth. There wasn’t much conversation, as Mom was deep in thought with her projects.

    Grandmother Competitions

    The visit to Meridian couldn’t come soon enough. During the winter there was a short period of time when I was home, sick. Instead of the customary puzzle book, Daddy had gotten a ball of crochet thread and a needle to keep me entertained between fevers. I couldn’t wait to show Granny what I could make. I rode The City of New Orleans, a delightful steam engine train, to Meridian that year. During the trip I made a shell ...
