How to choose just one? Every memory was special and conjured up images of younger years or family members that were quilting long before we were born. After much reading, the quilt used to wrap the dog was a memory we couldn't get out of our heads. Later, when talking to a friend about this idea of wrapping someone or something with a special quilt, she mentioned that she had wrapped her mother in a quilt before she buried her. I love this- the idea of covering a loved one in a quilt - to use something we have spent countless hours creating, to comfort someone else.
So many comments were about quilts made by their grandmothers that were thread worn, but still loved; a quilt made for a friend that was sick but needed to feel secure, a quilt given as a gift to a child leaving home - all of these quilting memories sounded special - how quilts have been a comforting presence from birth to death. Thank you for sharing - it's been a great look into how the quilt has played a part of our daily lives.
