description on back of card:

Trees bear fruit in season, but then if we diligently store it away in jars, it will be saved and preserved,  to be enjoyed in the season that follows.  In the same way, when we tell the stories from our lives to the next generation, those stories are preserved.   Each of us bears a story of all that has shaped our lives.  The fabrics I have used in this quilt come from old clothes with unique histories and stories.  The different pieces make up a beautiful whole.  So it is with all the events in our lives, families, and communities, and these stories must be passed on and preserved, from generation to generation, so they will not be forgotten.
