The Warmth And Comfort Of A Quilt

by Elmer Prather, guest blogger

This is the 26th Cobble Hill puzzle that I have had the pleasure of putting together. It is a 500 piece puzzle appropriately titled "Portrait of a Quilt" by Hellen Klebesadel.

"Portrait of a Quilt" 500 piece by Helen Klebesadel. Assembled & Photo by Elmer Prather.
The reason I chose this puzzle was the brilliant colors in the fabrics displayed. The pieces reminded me of the different colored cloth my mother, grandmother and aunts used to make quilts. We lived in the country when I was growing up and my mother would let me do some of the sewing of the quilts that they made. I really enjoyed that. This puzzle was a pleasure to put together because as the puzzle came together, I could see in the puzzle the same colors of the pieces of cloth they used for the quilts. It made me want to find a needle, a thimble and some cloth to sew together.

My mother has passed but I was blessed to have had the best while she was here.

  1. This is beautiful. I love all the bright vibrant colors. I also remember the quilting done by Mama, Ma, our aunts and sometimes our sisters. There was a lot of gossiping going on during the sewing. LOL. The puzzle really captures the beautiful work of the quilters.
