Susan is the mother of our Producer and 2L law student, Chris Blexrud! So, I'm thrilled to learn about her quilting life.
Here's her words on "Why I quilt":
I love quilting because it’s a tradition in the mountains. In the 19th Century, women cut the good sections out of old clothing and frayed bed linens and fashioned the pieces together to make something beautiful. I look at quilting as a metaphor for life. We all have our attributes and our foibles. The trick is to gather the good and assemble it, discarding the throwaways. Heaven knows, I have regrets, but I try to piece together all the good in my life. When I make a quilt, I think about choosing all the most vibrant fabrics and how they work in symmetry. Together, they are supported and complete, more than the sum of their parts.
