American Made Mystery BOM Quilt- Block 2: What’s in a Name?

What’s in a name?  “This Most Perfect Hill“, a poem by Lisa Jarnot, inspired Block 2’s name. Jarnot is a contemporary writer from Buffalo, NY and once said: “I think poems are always a collage on some level…. Collage is a way to force awareness out of the random flow of information that’s constantly bombarding us.” Read or hear the poem aloud on the PoetryFoundation.org website.
