The mosaic of art Jeannie Spears' comment in her essay, "I did inherit a love of fabric from my mom," hit home with me. I love quilts and have taken a stab at making one. Until I read her story, [MWP, YourStory, Oct. 2016] I didn't realize that that love comes out of the joy of looking at, touching and working with fabrics. Making a quilt is maybe all about taking some fabric and showing it off in an unexpected way.
