Quilters have always told stories with their art. Sometimes, as in Underground Railroad Quilts, it was in symbols. Other times, as in Whig Quilts or Temperance Quilts, the message and story was not so hidden. Today we’re out in the open with the messages we want to convey. We mark milestones in our lives, and the lives of those we treasure, with our art. Many of us have made quilts for graduation presents or to mark major transitions in the lives of young people and those who have helped guide them.
Today we’re showing off four that have recently been shared with us by our readers. Most obviously took years of planning. It’s that timeless caring that we’d like to celebrate.
Our thanks go to Kristen, Randi, Nancy and Clydene for sharing them with us.
