Quilts, we are a family who admires quilts. We don't just admire them we use them on our beds, quilts are great all year round. My grandmother has stitched together some beautiful quilts, as did my mother. Each quilt seems to have a story behind it, from the special design or often times the scraps that were once leftovers from a garment that was made. As a little girl I remember my grandmother talking about her quilts, and pointing out a particular fabric that would bring back a memory of a loved one and their outfit.
I'm not so sure quilts of today are put together in the same fashion, but there are just as beautiful and unique. My friend Deb, makes some amazing quilts, you can see some of her work on her blog HERE.
The weekend before Elizabeth's 20th birthday we had a girls Saturday out, thanks to Arthur and the boys for running the store and caring for 2 little girls. One of the main stops on Elizabeth's list for the day was the quilt shop.
The shop made us all dream of what style of quilt we would make. We walked around looking and touching fabrics, it was such a treat to browse this little shop. One day Lord willing, we Munck ladies are going to make a quilt or two...with Rebekah guiding us, since she is the head seamstress. Until then we'll enjoy the remarkable work and talent that goes into each quilt we see.
As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
