There’s No Place Like Jesse’s Home

There's No Place Like Jesse's Home, 64 x 80 inches, by O.V. Brantley, 2009.


Although I sell  many  of my quilts, I try to give away a good number as well. It gives me great joy to give quilts to those who need encouragement, healing or just a dose of joy in their lives. I believe my quilts provide all of those things because each one is made with love. 

My latest quilt gift is There’s No Place Like Jesse’s Home. I made it for  the Dad of my friend Justine Boyd.  His name is Jesse Norman. Whenever Justine spoke of home in south Georgia, you could just see the happiness in her face. I am sure that Mr. Norman was a big part of creating that joy. I hope he is enjoying his quilt.

    OV, your quilts indeed provide all those things and more. Every time I look at the framed one over my fireplace, I marvel at the bouquet of flowers. The “gentleman farmer” quilt was truly a wonderful surprise and special Christams gift for a friend. And let’s not foregt about the unbelievable purse quilt Laura Turner Seydel purchased at our YWCA Open Your Purse Auction in 2008 for $1,500 and donated to a woman and son who had lived in our transition home. And, of course, the most precious quilt of all is dad’s…”There’s No Place Like Jesse’s Home.” What a befitting title since I love going home – everybody knows that! Dad said recently that you can’t find a good quiltmaker anymore. Well, he hasn’t met you but he will soon. I will let you know his reaction…I am getting choked up now just thinking about it. For sharing your gifts love and time I am grateful. Fondly, Justine

    The YWCA Purse Auction is September 15, 2010. I would love to discuss partnerships. You quilt in 2008 was such a hit! Guests are still talking about it!
