A Quilt Story

Don't you love the stories behind quilts? They make them that much more meaningful.  If you haven't discovered the new blog, Quilt Story already, run (click) over there. There are some beautiful quilts to see with beautiful stories behind them. Today, they are featuring one of mine!

If you've been around my blog for a while, this quilt will be a familiar one. 
It is probably one of my all-time favorites, and always will be.

  12. Beautiful quilt story Amy. I did the same thing when one of our friends died in childbirth with their fifth baby. I felt helpless and wanted to do something. I made quilts from each of her children out of her clothing. I cried buckets onto those quilts, but it was therapeutic to sew them.

Thank you so much for your comments - they make my day! I try to respond to as many as my 'mommy' time allows, but life sometimes gets in the way. Please know how much I appreciate each of them.

I apologize for the current comment settings that require a registered user account. They are the only way that I don't get tons of gross spam. I'm hoping Blogger will make a way where people who are not registered users, but would like to leave a comment can do so. Please, Blogger! In the mean time, thanks for your patience.

I also love to respond to questions. If you are a no-reply blogger, please leave an email address so I can get back to you. Or you can email me directly: amy @ diaryofaquilter.com. Thanks!
