Feminine Fusion

October 30, 2016: Patchwork Quilt I



“Much like a patchwork quilt, inspiration that stirs and motivates me is made of many things.”  – Robert Reynolds


The quilter’s stash is never-ending.  Snips and pieces leftover from other projects, swatches they bought or traded because they simply had to have it.  Often these bits and scraps make their way into a patchwork quilt.

On this episode of Feminine Fusion, you’ll hear a patchwork quilt of music. These are some works that didn’t quite fit into recent programs, but are worthy of sharing all the same.  Host Diane Jones is your guide.
