Ruth's Scripture Quilt
It reminded me of the second full-size quilt I finished 30 years ago, a rail fence in dark blue, light blue, and beige Wamsutta calicoes. While I was handquilting that one, I was at my sister's house in Tennessee, and her four- or five- year old son Greg was into "Spidee Man" big time. Many a time I would stand up to take a break from quilting and find myself totally ensnared in elaborate string spider webs!
About 20 years ago I agreed to sell that quilt to a neighbor in Gallup. Seven years later I walked into an antique shop in Gallup and found the quilt on sale for $15! I did not buy it back!
