Much inspired by the fiber work of Faith Ringgold, Buddhist thankgas, and my friend Sally Brooking's amazing wedding quilt, I am creating a story quilt for my expected first baby.
I wanted to put my community, family, friends, and neighborhood into this story, so I asked for words of wisdom, images, and pieces of fabric to put into the quilt, Pieces of You. The hope is that the quilt will tell this new person of the inspiring, beautiful, wonderful people, places, and ideas of the world I have come to know.
With each stitch this project becomes richer with stories and more deeply embedded with love. Little one, you're not here yet, but you are already loved. So loved. Just you wait and see.
