Quote for the Day

"You're just given so much to work with in a life and you have to do the best you can with what you've got. That's what piecing is. The materials is passed on to you or is all you can afford to buy...That's just what's given to you. Your fate. But the way you put them together is your business."

~ Anonymous woman quoted in The Quilters, 1978
