Feminine Fusion

S4-48: Patchwork Quilt, Part XXII


“We stitch together quilts of meaning to keep us warm and safe, with whatever patches of beauty and utility we have on hand.”  – Anne Lamott

Every few months we add another block to our Patchwork Quilt, releases and performances by women for no other reason than to enjoy the music.  This week, host Diane Jones has searched through her music library and found these works to share.
