My Old Barn

My Old Barn

By Hardy Chandler

This barn is an historic treasure on our property. I see it from my kitchen window every day and have always wished it had a quilt block. So now it does!

Do You See What I Saw...

Do You See What I Saw...

By Carol Preston

Do you see what I saw...a beautiful original drawing, created by a talented person who found herself homelss, given a chance for a new beginning by Art From the Streets project, created beauty and inspiration for my quilt. Quilt is for sale, with proceeds going to Art from the Streets.

Original color drawing by Catherine Townsend (top right), purchased by Carol and Jeff Preston in Austin, TX, 2012, at Art from the Streets show, an art sale of works created by people who are homeless. The project provides art materials and space for the artists to work. Proceeds from the sale of the artwork go directly to the artist.

I See My Son in Soldiers

by Kathleen Lambert

My son enlisted in the army at age 19. Since then, whenever I see a soldier, I see my son. I consider it an honor to have been called Mom by more than one of his friends.
