UVALDE, Texas – Nancy Musquiz aims the spray glue, then presses down the batting. Her quilting partner, Carol Wilson, pulls from the other side. Their hands slide across the fabric with practiced rhythm. Pat, pat. Smooth, smooth. No lumps or bumps in this quilt.
Nearby, Susan Stone laughs as her ironing table rolls away, its wheels rumbling across the floor.
