Alabama gets Frozen

FL Sister id tagAt Sisters at Heart, Miles Apart we LOVE to see the ways that quilting connects people and keeps hearts stitched together. So … Just one more note about the Azalea City Quilters Guild show last month in Mobile, AL.

The quilts displayed across the way from the Sisters at Heart booth included some work which featured panels from the story “Frozen”. All weekend long I saw young ladies come to pose with the famous sister picture.

Somewhere along the way the first day of the show I met the grandmother who had made four of the quilts for her granddaughters. (She had made other kinds of quilts for other grandchildren, too. 17 in all – if my memory serves me correctly.)

The detail that caught my eye was the dimensional pinwheels on the one she made for her granddaughter, Shelby.

And then, I got to meet Miss Shelby – one very sweet and helpful young stitcher and photographer! (In fact, she came by as we were loading and volunteered to be my packing assistant. What a kind and thoughtful help she was!)

According to the Frozen story, one act of true love can thaw a frozen heart. I hope Shelby’s life is overflowing with people who show her acts of true love.

At Sisters at Heart, Miles Apart we LOVE to see the ways that quilting connects people and keeps hearts stitched together. We’d love for you to share such stories with us.
