I wrote to a friend recently.
Passing on some information about a private party quilt and fabric sale.
"there's a story in those quilts and fabrics"
I wrote to her...I'll share it with you one day
we all make quilts.
we all make quilts for different reasons.
we select fabrics, carefully,
and add them to our stash
some fabrics are chosen with specific people in mind
we think of those we love as we look at quilts or patterns
and they carry our love to them in the finished quilt
that they wrap around them
as they move through their lives
but sometimes we part with our intended fabrics, or quilts, or blocks
I hope when you receive that gift of a fat quarter bundle
or a quilt top
or a stack of blocks
that you will honour the person that first had these treasures
and give wing to their projects
put your own story
into those fabrics
and pass it on to someone you love
