Priestesses quilt


Priestesses quilt
Originally uploaded by FranSb.
In the quiet afternoons
the priestess gathering
makes quilts. This is the pattern
they call bouganvillaea for it is made
from blossoms gathered at dawn
and sewn with delicate precision
into gossamer
to cover you as you sleep.

I think this is just magnificent Fran. Maybe we need to sit around and have a quilting session together and weave a battle coat that shows off all our scars. As we work we can talk and chat like they do in those American Quilting circles.

Lovely, Fran, so lovely. I'd give anything to doze beneath such a quilt.

I think your quilt is lovely.It makes me want to curl up in one of my favourite places,in my past.My house,lots of heat and one of my favourite books,"Hidden from plain view" It is about the early American quilters and there escape to freedom.I have to use books and words to try and create and leave the rest to others and admire from afar!
