Over the Back Fence


Sunday afternoon, I looked out my kitchen window and saw the unexpected -- colorful quilts draped over the pickets. Curious, I went out to investigate and met the woman (Barb) who lives behind me. The house has had several owners in the last 20 years and many of them clearly wanted to be left alone. Sunday, however, I discovered a quilter lives behind me.

Draped over the fence were the Quilts of Valor Barb had made and planned to present tonight at a community gathering. We visited through the fence about machine quilters in the community, the presentation, and the quilts that she and I had made for Quilts of Valor.

I hope to visit with Barb another day without a fence between us because clearly we share a passion for quilts and Quilts of Valor.
