Blueberry Bay

My dear friend's house burned completely to the ground this summer, due to a wildfire. I quickly went into action to turn a community quilt top into a blanket of love for her.

I love the way a quilt top becomes a quilt, emerges as a gift imbued with love and prayers for the receiver, and somehow a name suggests itself in the process.

What was simply called Stacked Coins before, became Blueberry Bay; which conjures up images of long summer afternoons on Cape Cod, with the sea in the background, gulls winging overhead and blueberry bushes growing nearby.
