AROUND THE FRAME: QUILTER’S WORLD EDITOR VISITS BORN AGAIN QUILTS

Details Sunbonnet Sue and and Overall Sam quilt restored by Quilter’s World Editor Carolyn Vagts.

It all started with a person unknown. It could be a family member, friend, neighbor, work associate or maybe a loyal Waynedale News reader. I could think of 20 people it could be, but I'd rather not think about the specific person, I'd rather think of the many wonderful people I know that anyone of them could have "done it".

"Done what?" you ask. Someone "out there" recommended Born Again Quilts to the Journal Gazette as worthy to be their Small Biz Highlight of the week. Not just any week...

HOME COUNTRY: CELTIC

Details

"I believe I'll write some Celtic music," said Dud one morning at the world dilemma think tank down at the coffee shop. "I've been studying it."

"I didn't know you were Celtic," Steve said.

"I'm not, but I do get occasional bouts of depression and that qualifies me. I've thought about it a lot.

Rusty rolled over, scratched his nose with his paw and fell back to sleep. Life was awesome! The beautiful Garden, called Eden, was perfect! The Lord God had created this wonderful place for Adam and Eve and all the animals, birds and fish. The animals loved to run and play all day long. There were rocks and trees and bushes to hide behind when they played hide-and-seek and big meadows to run in. Sometimes Adam and Eve played with them when they weren't taking care of the Garden.

One day Rusty...

NEWS FROM THE HILLS : VALENTINE'S DAY

Details ALYCE FAYE BRAGG

Winter has loosened its grip on our hills for a few days. The recent snow, piled wide and deep, has almost disappeared except for a few patches here and there. February has always seemed a dingy, muddy month that spans the bridge between winter and spring.

A bright spot is Valentine's Day, which appears in the middle of the month to cheer the hearts of lovers. Back in my childhood (a hundred or so years ago!) we would be busy making valentines out of notebook paper, construction paper, or any...

AROUND THE FRAME: PRESIDENTIAL QUILTS AND THEIR ENDURING LEGACY

Details This quilt honors President Benjamin Harrison. Note the five pointed stars indicative of star fabric manufactured at or soon after the 1876 American Centennial. A Harrison Rose quilt made by Mrs. Susan Nokes McCord of McCordsville, Hancock County, Indiana, circa 1860.

From President Washington to President Obama quilts reflect the life and times of the men who lead and serve our country. Whether made by their family members or presented to them by admiring citizens these quilts make interesting study.

George Washington's wife Martha was an excellent needle worker. Their plantation home Mount Vernon displays a quilt that as was the custom of the day worked on by many women, but Martha did the most important part: the centerpiece.
