Last night I got and e-mail from my sisters sister in-law, Meredith (catch that) , who sent me pictures that she took at the Rodeo and Livestock Show in Houston I wanted to share them with you. I got me thinking about how 10 years ago before I started quilting and before I met Meredith I didn't even give a thought to how fabric was joined together, stitched and cared for and what that final quilt means to its maker. Maybe it was because I was in the throngs of my 20's and was too self absorbed to notice the meaning behind actions, but I care now. These quilts and every single one that has ever been made has love in it. Love of the time it took to make it , love of the skill, love of the quilter, it's recipient. I think this is why we craft quilts, pure love!
