Why I Quilt, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Physically, it started in 1986 when I was a young mother, but the roots go back further. It really started with a startling splash of color…red, purple, yellow and black are the most memorable colors radiating from the center of a Lone Star or as some people know it, the Star of Bethlehem. I don’t… Continue reading Why I Quilt, by Beverly Hicks Burch
