Aug 09, Bonnie rated it really liked it. Given as a gift from my daughter, Katie I enjoyed reading this book on many levels -- her thoughtfulness, the book's wisdom, and also remembering many enjoyable times around a quilting project shared with friends, my sister, mother, daughters and granddaughters. A couple of great quotes 1- a woman was sitting on a plane when her seatmate asked what she did I quilt. He said - really, does anyone need more than one quilt? Saturday, June 21, Wondering about your Love Status?
Wondering about your Love Status? Patricia L. Cummings With the hundreds of daisies in the city park next to my house, anyone could have a heyday in trying to determine is "she loves me, she loves me not. We have the answer! Jim Cummings took this photo at my request. It reminds me of some Redwork embroidery designs that look as though the little boy is pondering an age old question.
As he picks off the petals, he says "She loves me, she loves me not" until all the daisy petals are gone. The one he ends on reveals the truth of the matter. I love Redwork, the first type of embroidery I ever learned how to do! A bouquet picked from this field would never be missed!
Friday, June 20, Please do not sing Happy Birthday! Happy Birthday! Cummings In the more than six decades that I have lived, I never knew until now this bit of news that comes from the department of strange news, Indeed. Copyright law is alive and well and demands a fee, yes, money, to any business or corporation that wants to play, sing, record, or otherwise feature or perform what has come to be known as "The Birthday Song. Anyone over 6 years old probably at least secretly resents that song being sung to them. This new report explains why some restaurants are beginning to offer other ways of honoring a birthday - a free dessert is one of them, a rap song is another.

Since this is still my birthday week, the news was timely. If that fact would deter people from using it, all the better. We need a new tradition. Now on to more un-birthday things to do! Sweetheart Memorabilia. Military men could draw from a number of options when mailing home a souvenir to a loved one on the home front. Sweetheart jewelry has been popular for years. I still treasure the bejeweled necklace sent home to me from my brother when he was in training at Lackland Air Force Base in the s. Surely, such an object becomes an even more important memory maker when the person who has given the item is deceased.
No doubt, to be remembered in a kindly way is the wish of everyone who has ever walked the planet. Besides the popular Sweetheart and Mother pillow covers that were mailed home, un-stuffed, but intended to be filled to use as a living room or bedroom pillow, impractical as that may seem now because they were silk or at a later time, rayon or acetate, another Sweetheart or Mother textiles comes to mind: pouches.
The same side bottom half depicts an American Flag. The donor who has since died said it was his grandfather's, who was a WWI vet. Subsequent genealogical investigation shows that he entered the service 26 May , and was married sometime in the prior year listed as single in his June draft registration card and first child born 1 May For more information, please write to: quiltersmuse gmail.

From the Editor
What is a Kilim? Before a day or so ago, I would not have been able to inform anyone as to what Kilims are, where they are made, or how they are used. The short but informative article was written by freelance writer Martha Riedel of Middlebury, Connecticul.
I looked up further information. Kilims always have repeat designs. Today, they are mainly made in China, India, and Turkey. Kilims are rugs that are flat woven on simple horizontal frames. They look identical on the front and the back. First made about 5 B. Symbols are included on rugs of this type made in Persia, China, and other countries. One way to identify whether or not one has a true kilim is to hold it up to the light. If open slits appear between colors in the woven designs, then it is an authentic kilim. Camel hair and silk are also used in addition to wool to make this type of traditional rug.
The person who gave me this extraordinary gift was traveling through Turkey more than 20 years ago and at first, being familiar with Navajo rug weavings, mistook the rug for a contemporary one of the American southwest. The one given to me has bright colors. If one were to base an assessment on that, one could believe it to be contemporary, not antique. Labels: kilim. Tuesday, June 17, "Patriotic Dogs" quilit.

Patriotic Dogs Patricia L. Cummings While you were sleeping, I was making another quilt. The latest quilt is comprised of salvaged quilt blocks that I finished embroidering before setting the squares in a pleasing manner. Featured here are five embroidered blocks and four alternate "Victory" fabric blocks assembled into a wall quilt by Patricia Cummings In assembling the quilt, I thought about light and dark squares; the block that I wanted to be the center of attention; and the concept of "visual weight.
The quilt block, because it has a white background stands out from the rest. If one thinks about it, when reading a newspaper, one's eye goes first to the upper right hand corner. I kept that concept in mind. I also thought about the concept of "visual weight" when I chose to place the "Ship Ahoy" block where I did.

The quilt's theme is related to war, World War II in fact. It is not by chance that the Bull Dog and the flag of Great Britain are dead center in the quilt, for emphasis on all of the collaboration that took place between the United States and the UK at that time. The quilt is one of a kind. Jim "loves" this quilt and promptly wanted to hang it up and take a photo of it. We certainly are a "team" and I am so happy when anyone likes my work. Hope you enjoyed seeing this one.

Lucky Person to be Given a Quilt Patricia L Cummings Charlotte Croft looking happy in a blouse given to her by a friend Recently, my friend Charlotte Croft in Vermont sent me a photo of herself and a scrap quilt which will be given to the next person who finds himself homeless.

The quilt is so mesmerizing in design and colors the recipient is sure to forget any troubles.
