Making a World of Difference One Quilt at a Time : Inspiring Stories About Quilters & How They Have
about this item
Quilts exemplify comfort through the warmth they provide; community, since they are often created by groups; and love, given the time and effort they require. The quilters profiled here know this and have turned something they love doing into a way of showing love. Each chapter introduces a quilter or group of quilters. They include elderly women in Michigan who create bedcovers for a homeless shelter, an Indiana group that makes quilts for every member of every Habitat for Humanity house built in their county, and a Massachusetts woman who organized the sewing of quilts for everyone injured in the Boston Marathon bombing. From a blind woman in Texas to preschoolers in Australia, these people are making their compassion tangible one stitch, square, and quilt at a time. Their wonderfully inspiring stories show that everyone who has ever wondered, but what can I do?”can do something that will help someone.
