A Picture and a Story

"The quilt was a picture and a story.  It was a testimony to a time when pressures did not cry out for urgent things to be constantly tended to, when the world had not created a thousand different temptations pulling free time into a myriad of mindless activities.  It told of values and patience and timeless meanings.  It drew a person in.  It spoke of comfort and rest.  It soothed with a gentleness of a mother's kiss."
From The Quilt by T. Davis Bunn

  1. That's a nice quote. And, in those days, folks had more to do - I'm not sure how it was all managed!
