Thank you for posting this lovely interview. Such a pleasure to read and reminded me of my mother, grandmother and her sisters, my great aunts. They made quilt after quilt to give away. Each quilt brought joy to both the receiver and the giver...an expression of love to give and to receive. Making quilts filled their lives with creative energy and the motivation to keep working. They were always thrilled to show me their latest quilts. I loved to watch their faces as they talked about the choices they made in the process and who they were making it for. Their passion was contagious.
