Celebrating Super Saturday
Memories are like patch work quilts, each section is sewn together.
I’ve been reading several blogs that are written by quilters and love to see their creations. The things they make bring back such loving memories for me.
Quilts are a folk art and are used for more than warmth. Many families use them to tell stories or help them to remember people
I remember the quilts my grandmother made. They were full of scrapes and pieces of all of our outgrown clothing. She asked everyone in the family to save the material for her.
I loved seeing those quilts being made. I could sit and remember what dress a particular piece of that quilt was made from.
I know there are lots of quilters out there that make beautiful quilts and the materials are now brand new. But my grandmothers quilts were often made from clothing that now a days we would give to Good will. Some of her older quilts had names embroidered into them. My mother knew the people as they had gathered there at my grandmother’s house when my mother was a child.
Just as quilts often have patterns and lots of different colors, a family is made up of lots of different kinds of family members. I think every one of my children is very different from each other, yet we are all bound together like a quilt. Warm and comfortable.
There will be no house blessing at my house today. I’m off to go and see that new grandson of mine again.
Have a SUPER Saturday everyone!
