Maya Angelou (1928-2014)

 Maya Angelou 1928-2014

Passes away at age 86.

"People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did. But people will never forget how you made them feel."

Indescribable and unforgettable. And now...very, very sad at such a huge loss for this world.

Michele Bilyeu blogs With Heart and Hands as she shares a quilting journey through her life in Salem, Oregon and Douglas, Alaska. Sewing, quilting, and wildcrafting, with small format art quilts, prayer flags, and comfort quilts for a variety of charitable programs. And best of all, sharing thousands of links to Free Quilt and Quilt Block Patterns and encouraging others to join her and make and donate quilts to charitable causes.   Help us change the world, one little quilt, art quilt, and prayer flag at a time!


  1. How sad this is. She was such an inspiration to others. RIP Dr. Angelou.

  2. I loved her writings and quotes- she was so upbeat and reflective about life. Her life's work is a grand legacy- your presence will be missed Maya Angelou.

  3. May she rest in eternal peace.
    Hugs to you~

  4. Thank you for your support. Talk about a life well lived...a role model for all...I love MA...and I had no idea she was 86. She lives in our hearts forever.

  5. I agree, a huge loss for us all.
