February's weeklies are going to be a bit different. At one of the last quilt guild meetings, we held a garage sale, and I bought a bag of scraps of very old quilts that have been cut into.
These are usually called "cutter quilts", but the scraps really were pretty and I cannot imaging cutting these full sixed quilts up. Hand pieced and quilted, they are so very thin. My thoughts about this bag were that "someone loved this quilt so much, took so much time to make it, and someone else cut it into parts". Sad, isn't it?
So I'm calling this month's theme "broken hearts". You can either interpret the sayings as a sad lonely person, or from the quilt's perspective, your choice.
