Today, I have created a blog (thank you Gillian for the push).
I'm just learning, so I hope you'll be patient with me.
Unfortunately, I have separated the display of "As old as..." into 2 sections.  Hopefully, I'll group them together next time.  Please enjoy these amazing art quilts.  The quilt artists put their hearts & souls into these little treasures...they extend themselves technically...and I hope they have fun.
