Beth tells us "The Museum of American Folk Art in New York has a quilt in their collection. It was made by Maria Cadman Hubbard at the age of 79. It is all red and white, and contains more than a dozen quotes and sayings, all depicted with tiny pieced quilt blocks.
When I saw the quilt in a book, I was captured in particular by one of the blocks, which says, “Kind words never Die”. I decided then and there that I wanted to create a simple design that could remind me of this truth.
And so I created a little colorful wreath, wrapping itself around the words, holding them there in focus. I hope that this little pin cushion reminds us all to speak kindness into our todays and tomorrows. You might be one of a very few sparkling gems in someone else’s timeline. "
