There is something about a quilt that makes you stop and look. So much work! Sometimes it is hard to fathom the amount of fabric, number of cuts, the strips and squares, the sewing and the quilting that goes into each.
Each is so unique. Give the same pattern to ten different people and you will have ten different quilts that seem so unique you would have to stop to realize the pattern was the same. The quilter's personality really comes through with the colors she chooses for the fabrics. You can further sense the era it was made by the shades of those colors.
