i've been sorting through years of fabric. i found boxes of fabric that i hadn't seen in forever. hadn't even thought of using for a decade. a friend told me of a quilting guild that makes quilts to donate to women's shelters and people in need. people in palliative care. they also send them to third world countries. she came by the studio today to pick up the fabric from me. we filled the back of her van while her little girls played with pearl and she told stories of the ways these wonderful women work together to bring joy to people's lives with quilts. another layer of beauty that comes from the warmth of a quilt. generations of love. traditions of helping and healing. a quilt is full of so much goodness.
