This magnificent quilt was hand-wrot by Barnrat (my s-i-l) for the hubster and I. The pattern is called Court House Steps. The material that is the central one around which the rest was chosen is a random pattern of Viola’s (aka Johnny-Jump-Ups) my favorite flowers.
Barnrat names her quilts. Thus ours is entitled Timeless Moments taken from this poem:
“A people without history
Is not redeemed from time, for history is a pattern
Of timeless moments. So, while the light fails
On a winter’s afternoon, in a secluded chapel
History is now and England.”
~Thomas Stearns Eliot~
Four Quartets. Little Gidding V
Need I say, this beautiful, timeless gift humbles us. Thank you Barnrat! We love you!
