Giving something ‘hand made’ is the ultimate gift. It takes time and contemplation and creative problem solving. When you know the person you’re giving the gift to, those creative choices are made more important and personal. It’s one of the most profound things you can do because you’re giving a part of yourself in the piece and representing a part of them. This quilt was a birthday gift to me from a dear friend, and it made me think of what it takes to make something for someone else. A lovely offering.
