This is a good time to tidy - clean offices, files - to discard, pass on ... My friend Cindy sent some photos so I thought I'd share them with you. She sent them because I love quilts - and she has no idea where they came from. Somewhere in Kansas, likely. Oh how I love their aprons, their expressions ...

Notice the plentiful use of white backgrounds, something we all strove to get away from for years. And now that is back, with the look of modern quilting.
My friend Karla is deconstructing a 1980s quilt she made for her daughter's birth. It features bright cross-stitch blocks and she plans to replace the fading '80s sashing fabric with something modern to celebrate the birth of her first grandchild. We admired the blocks yesterday and brainstormed about the bright colors she could use to sash them together now. But she shook her head and said her daughter would like white ... WHITE!!!
