quilted squares

a quilt by the window. receiving light, creating comfortable space, visually appealing.

this quilt was made by my great-grandmother's hands. i remember her hands well, hands that held us close, loving us fiercely. she was quite a lady.

folded down, you can see the variety of polyester squares with the hand stitching, crochet, all around each square.

i love the simplicity of the design with the bold colors & variation in textures. i can imagine her wearing polyester pants.

quilts are made to be used, to wrap yourself in or sit yourself upon. i love the boy at the window, looking down our street. he's at home. this quilt is a part of our home and the warmth & love we hold dear.
