This quilt from a pattern appropriately called "Band Together" by Bill Kerr and Weeks Ringle
was finished just in time to give as a gift to acknowledge a milestone event.
The event was the college graduation of another young person who had the many people of our amazing village
banded together to guide him up the many steps that led to the podium.
Members of the village carried and rocked, collected rocks, employed a pint-size yard boy, taught welding, kept a sense of humor, counseled his mother, and displayed in countless other ways that they loved and supported him as he strove for the independence of adulthood.
Thank you to the village (again).
Congratulations to the graduate!
