Quilt Photography

Today I worked on a quilt made by a mom for her daughter. It was filled with words of encouragement and images of things that were important to them.

As I worked I was thinking about a young friend of mine who recently had to say goodbye to her beloved grandmother. Her death was a shock that has left a gaping whole in her life.

And I began to wonder...if our lives aren't an awful lot like a quilt. Pieced and patched together.....and best viewed from an oblique angle.

What a great analogy of our lives - thanks for sharing.

Your quilting looks great - I can only aspire to such competence!

I dont know why but your last sentence made me cry (I'm just so sensitive lately). I think it's because it's the total truth!
