Portrait of a Lady

Every now and then, I like to post portraits I’ve taken (here’s another), because each person has a story to tell and I think you can learn a lot from portraits. The woman in this photo is the local quilting guild’s featured quilter at their annual show. Rita learned to sew from her mother and to quilt from her daughter. She’s made so many quilts, she said, that she “never stopped to count” just how many. She’s pictured at her mother’s sewing cabinet and the quilt on her lap with the flowers she hand-appliqued and hand-quilted. Lovely!
