My cousin, Mary Frances Wood lives in Forest, Virginia. She is a prize winning quilter as well as a professional genealogist. So when we go to visit, my husband, Ron, can talk for hours about family history. I just love admiring her handwork. This quilt which she kindly gave to me on our last visit was an entry in a contest about "Home" or perhaps it was "House" themed quilts. I just love the design and the bright and happy colors. This is the kind of house I would call a home.
As Thanksgiving draws near I have so much to be grateful for. I am reminded that one of the purposes of art/craft is to tie us together. This lovely hand made piece is a testament to this. Thank you, Mary Frances.
