Colorful work

I enjoy reading your letters, and the stories about olden days. Many I could put my own name on.

I wanted to share this photograph with you. It shows a yo-yo bouquet quilt, created with antique buttons. I hope you enjoy it!

Sharon Munsterman - Linneus, Missouri

Very nice, Sharon. Readers who would like to see another example of a yo-yo quilt can go to the “Community” section of www.Cappers.com, and find the Open Session section from May 2009. Accompanying the letters is a photograph of another quilt adorned with these fanciful decorative flourishes. – Editors
