Value … in more ways than one

calico fabric2Today is a ‘V’ day. It also means that the end of the A to Z blog challenge is drawing near. Four more days after today – W, X, Y, and Z – and the blog challenge will be done for 2013.

‘V’ is for value, a word with many definitions. Some of the dictionaries had 15 and 16 definitions for value. There are two definitions that apply to this set of 1934 quilt squares.

Quilters often use value as meaning: ‘That property of a color by which it is distinguished as bright or dark; luminosity’. Value is a critical component in choosing compatible and complimentary fabrics in a quilt.

DSC00221The value that I find applicable to these squares is the meaning of ‘relative worth, merit, or importance’. A descendant of Doris Morris evidently did not place much value on these quilt squares, placing them in a yard sale for an exorbitantly low price. I, however, place a high value on these quilt blocks. Not of a monetary value, but as a historical and sentimental value.

What do you value in your life?



  1. I value the people and animals I love; the ability to think, create, and execute my ideas; and the humanity of people. Such a hippie. 🙂

    • Such great things to value! You sound like an awesome person!
