“Anyone who works on a quilt, who devotes her time, energy, creativity, and passion to that art, learns to value the work of her hands. And as any quilter will tell you, a quilter’s quilting friends are some of the dearest, most generous, and most supportive people she knows.” – Jennifer Chiaverini

I was gathering quilts for an upcoming trunk show and my husband looks aghast at this quilt. He asks, “Is it a tube top?” To him, the book she is holding looks like boobs with misplaced nipples. Now I can’t decide if I like this quilt after all. Do you see a book or boobs?
