sharing the love

We quilters often discover our passion for piecing at a turning point in life. Whether we decided to sew something for our first child, were seeking a fresh challenge like Emily Dennis of Quilty Love (find our chat with her on p48) or just moved to a town with a brilliant fabric store, we're all lucky to have found this special craft. And sometimes we quilt to mark these turning points as well. Kate Basti writes movingly this issue about making a quilt to remind her of home, and give something back to her community in the process. Playing with colour or trying new techniques is always fun, but it's the meaning behind those careful stitches that makes quilting so special. Join us online... we love to share!
