That is exactly what we all felt for this dear friend of ours. We wanted to do something, and yet give her the space and privacy that she needed. Still we needed to do something and that is when the idea of this quilt was thought of.
It is our way of saying... "we love you", "we are so sorry you are hurting", "we are here for you in any way", and last but not least "here's a hug from all of us, so that you can feel surrounded with love and know that you are not alone". Yes, a quilt can say and do all that, and more... and that is why I am a quilter!
"Our lives are like quilts - bits and pieces, joy and sorrow, stitched with love"
" Sometimes love is for a moment.
Sometimes love is for a lifetime.
Sometimes a moment is a lifetime."
"What we have once enjoyed and deeply loved we can never lose, for all that we love deeply becomes a part of us." Helen Keller
"Blankets wrap you in warmth, quilts wrap you in love."
