Women through the ages…

I had a chance to talk to a wonderful group of women yesterday — the Bluebonnet Patches in Ennis, Texas.  I was there to talk about my novel, Betsey Anne, but since it’s a quilting group, we naturally focused on quilts.  Such an interesting form of women’s art down through history.  Which came first — the necessity or the beauty?  Isn’t it fascinating how women can create beauty from the smallest scraps of what’s left over from the making of a garment, or what remains when a garment has completed its useful life.  Beauty and warmth, both.  Necessity fulfilled in artful grace.
