Default Private showing of one lady's quilts

Privileged to see one lady's quilt collection she has made in my home town....this is a small sample of what she has...please pardon my poor pictures that do not do them justice. This will take several uploads to see all I photographed yesterday.

And more she has done; it takes her three days to a week or two to do each quilt top and another week to quilt it.

This lady is house bound because of health reasons, cannot do much of anything, so she sews...quilts out various fabrics from Upholstery to hospital gowns with each piece 'talking' to her on pattern and colors. I thought she had an 'excellent' eye for color and design. She does not discuss her failing health or her husband's, but tills their days of creating beauty for the eye. Their children do not appreciate any of them and caused them to return the dining room table to its place rather than housing their LA where they could use it more. Therefore, many she showed me were not quilted yet. Nor have any of their children return to eat with them, so I said "Make your house comfortable for you!" I marvel at seniors who can find a reason to wake up each day, and do what they have found joy in doing.

All the photos I took are going into an album for her. Thank you for looking; I will add comments without names into the album.

What a lovely collection.....life is too short to move your LA to suit grown offspring (or brats more like).....Tell your friend she is amazing and so is her husband. Better not put this comment in the album.
