Happy National Quilting Day! Missouri Star Quilt Company had a call out for stories why people quilt, I didn't submit my story but I thought I would share it here anyway as well as some photos of the quilts the women in my family have made for me.
I love preserving memories
I love dreaming of how much a baby will puke, poop on, and seek comfort in their blankie
I love the joy on someone's face when they love the quilt that was made just for them
I love giving a gift that comes with my own blood (literally, I pin myself a lot), sweat and tears
