Quilting to Make A Difference - 07/21/2013
While wandering the internet today (I started on some historical research related to WWII and then got lost), I found this great site Quilt for Change .   It's a site that is about how quilters can come together to make a difference.   A lot of quilt patterns have their basis in expressing an opinion about certain things.   Goodness knows THOUSANDS of women sat home quilting while their men were off fighting.   You can imagine the imagery that went into those quilts.  I myself did a quilt after 9-11 as a means of coping.    It was made out of red, white and blue scraps to symbolize the melting pot that is America.   It was blue and red lightening bolts on a white background to symbolize that we were not helpless, we still had power.   The quilting was bursting stars to symbolize the fighting back we did beginning with the invasion of Afghanistan. Then there is the AIDS quilt.   A quilt started to honor those killed by that horrible disease and to raise awareness.   Quilts can heal.    Besides the practical of keeping warm, the meaning of a quilt can heal or give hope to those in need. I urge you to check out Quilt for Change.   Everyone can make a difference in so many ways.
