I wanted to put my community, family, friends, and neighborhood into a story, so I asked for words of wisdom, images, and pieces of fabric from their lives to put in the quilt. The hope is that I'll be able to tell this new person of the inspiring, beautiful, wonderful people, places, and ideas of the world I have come to know with this piece.
With each stitch this piece becomes richer with stories and more deeply embedded with love. Little one, you're not here yet, but you are already loved. Just you wait and see.
