Celic Quilt

It was not a woman’s desire to be forgotten. And in one simple, unpretentious way, she created a medium that would outlive even many of her husband’s houses, barns and fences; she signed her name in friendship onto cloth and, in her own way,
cried out, REMEMBER ME!” – Linda Otto Lispett

NB: I wrote about my family and this lost art in 2014 as part of a Weekly Writing Challenge.
