Habari Gani?

Today is the first day of Kwanzaa, so I greet you with Habari Gani. It means what is happening. The answer today is "Umoja". Umoja is unity. Kwanzaa consists of seven principles, one practiced each day of the seven days. The principles are Umoja, Kujichagulia, Ujima, Ujamaa, Nia, Kuumba and Imani. Have a Happy Kwanzaa!
Today's quilt is called Blue Line. I came up with the name because it reminded me of the book proofs that used to be called blue line. They were called that because they were done in blue ink. Why? I don't know. It is 59"x72", just right for a nap.
