Q is for quilt, an Alphabe-thursday offering . . .


Q is for quilt, crazy being my favorite. Every crazy quilt has meaning behind it. From the simple quilt made of favorite bits and pieces of clothes, to the quilts that have flowers and animals, initials and fancy embroidery stitches, all which symbolize different ideas and meanings.

The Alphabe-Thursday group is like a crazy quilt, in blog form. Each blog reveals much about it's owner. Some are very fancy, detail oriented and complex. Others are simple and feature interest in one or two areas. Some blog eveyday, some once a week, some once in a while. Each, though, is a lovely piece of work, just like a crazy quilt.
