“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”
― Dr. Seuss
I had moments of reflection, sadness and great joy this Thanksgiving. I miss family members that have gone beyond us and sadness that they couldn’t share in our celebration and also great joy in being with family and seeing friends from another lifetime! Mostly, I’m smiling because it all happened.
This is the latest addition to my quilt pile! Actually, I surprised my husband a couple of weeks ago and actually gave away 2 finished quilts and 3 quilt tops. His first question on completing a quilt always is, “What are you going to do with it?” I don’t make them with doing something with them as the potential outcome. . . It’s just the process and where it leads me!
The center of this quilt is hand appliqued and the pattern is taken from the book “Applique in Reverse” by Teri Henderson Tope. I have to admit to using the patterns and ignoring the technique! The border blocks are a continuous pattern “Pointed Tile” from the Aunt Martha series: Quilts Modern-Colonial published about 1954.
