What is the most meaningful thing you’ve ever made?
This week’s question is a tough one for me. I like to think that all of my quilts are meaningful for one reason or another, and some are more meaningful to the recipient as they are eye catching. (for example, the vintage quilt blocks that I had made into quilts using the hand pieced UFOs from someone’s grandma)
I would like to say that all of my quilts are meaningful to me, but that’s not entirely true. I could narrow it down more and say that all of the quilts I have made with fabric I love are meaningful to me. That’s a little more true, but in a superficial way.
I don’t have some amazing story of a special donated quilt, or a quilt that I have made for someone who really needed some extra comfort. I’ve made quilts to send to Quilts for Kids, and charity quilts for my MQG, but for some reason these quilts didn’t feel particularly meaningful. (Although hopefully the recipients felt differently.)
So, I guess my most meaningful quilt would be my memory quilt, not the ones I make for others, but when I finally sat down and made my own.
I loved piecing each of those shirts and having memories of all of these college Greek events coming back to me. (Not to mention this quilt is WARM!) Now that it is finished, I wondered why I didn’t make my memory quilt sooner.
I’m linking my story up at Mommy’s Nap Time. Head on over there to check out all of the other amazing meaningful quilt stories!
