Kindness

It is usually much easier to be kind to those who are nice to us. While the world can always use more kindness, the grumpier or ones who are rude are often the ones who need kindness the most. This can be a challenge, but can change someone’s day. Something I have to remind myself to always remember. I don’t know their story or stand in their shoes, or they mine. But it is rarely wrong to be kind. ~

Happy new week and thank you for visiting. ~ terre

Trip Around the World Quilt

Trip Around the World Quilt

I know I post mostly poetry and photography, but another love of mine that I have not shared so much is my love for quilts. It seems they are all vying for my time. When I am not doing the other, I can be found cutting up perfectly good fabric from my stash and making new creations. If I lived forever, I would always have more quilt ideas than I could possibly ever make. However, this doesn’t really matter as it is more about the art of quilting and sharing that love with others.

This love of quilts came early when as a child my grandmother would let me sleep under one of the colorful quilts at her house. When it came time to go to bed, we would lay on the bed and she would tell me about the pattern, stories of the quilt pattern, or about the pieces of fabrics in the quilt. She had Sun Bonnet Sue’s, Ladies with Parasols, Log Cabins,  appliqued butterflies, among others. The funny thing though, she didn’t quilt herself. She had her group of Kentucky quilting lady friends as she called them and they made the quilts. She loved quilts, but her talent was embroidery. She would sometimes take some of her embroidered pieces to them to be included in her quilts, such as the Ladies with parasols.

I never had my own quilt though, until she had her quilting friends make the one above. A beautiful, colorful, ‘Trip Around the World’. She gifted me with this special quilt when my children were young. The few quilts I had made were small baby quilts or quickly tied comforters for giving as gifts. I didn’t own a real quilt. I thought I was rich with this beauty with all the small tiny squares set on point so that they almost looked like diamonds. It was with this quilt that my children learned how special a quilt was and that it was like being covered by a blanket of love… and also to never sleep with chewing gum in your mouth. I thought of the pattern that was made just for me and hoped that it would be a lucky one that would help me to travel someday. Thank you Grandma for sharing your love of quilts, your stories, your time, and for my very own beautiful quilt. ~
