It's spring, it's springI
Here's a happy spring string quilt. I bought it in the spring, many years ago, when I lived in what felt like a very foreign place, the South. For a midwestern girl, it was not home. Strange accents. Strange ideas. Kinda scary.
I bought this quilt along the roadside in South Carolina. I was going to visit my a college buddy who had landed in a strange place too. South Carolina, with a husband studying to be a chiropractor.
It hung on our apartment wall in Zirndorf, Germany when we were first married. It looked so swell with our landlord's gold couch beneath it and light streaming in from the windows. How about those sawtooths along one edge. Isn't it the best!
