Life is Like a Quilt
One of the things that I love about quilting is that it relates to so many different pieces of my life. This year my alter ego acts as Madame President of our elementary school PTA. Last night I got a reminder call for our council meeting this morning and was asked if I would lead the Pledge of Allegiance and give a thought. On my way out the door I grabbed this quilt that hangs over my entry bannister and took it as my prop to illustrate how a quilt is like working together on a committee. You know...we all come in different colors, shapes and sizes; it takes many people (pieces) to make things happen; when we all work together then the project turns out beautifully...you get the idea.
So I'm curious about other's thoughts...
In what ways do you think that "life is like a quilt?"
