|A talented mind: Elephant's Child|
Georgia ran her hand along the quilt, feeling the seams and the stitches. 'Such tiny stitches! How did she do this?' she wondered, amazed at what she felt.
Was it a river? A wave? Flowing clouds? "This is so incredible, Elena!" Georgia exclaimed. "How did you manage such wonderful piecing?"
"The same way you do, the same way," Elena told her blind sister. "The fabric folded in my hands, and I stitched. Blindness is not a hindrance for us. We can hear the fabric speak, and feel the pattern move. Color to color, curve to curve."
Note: This has been edited to include the video below, AND to make sure that Elephant's Child is credited for this PhotoPrompt. This is her quilt, and it is amazing. It makes my hands hurt just to think about the work that she put into this creation! Wed., 5-16-12
