description on back of card:

Trees bear their 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.  In the winter, when all the fruits of our lives have been enjoyed by those who are coming after, we rest, and await the glorious spring.  Each of us bears a story of all that has shaped our lives.  The fabrics used in this quilt come from old clothes with unique stories.  The different pieces make up a beautiful whole. So it is with the events in our lives, families, and communities.  These stories must be passed on and preserved, from generation to generation, so they will not be forgotten.
