This is WHY I Sew — Sewing

January Winner! Anita from Virginia (USA) 2

Our first winner was Anita, in January. Anita's story is pretty special and really resonated within the #QMCommunity. Anita received a ton of comments, shares, encouragement and affection for her project. Here is her story:

 

Memory Quilt

 

"This is a memory quilt made for my Cousin from her deceased husband’s clothing. He was a farmer in rural Kentucky and loved his tractors. I pieced the tractors out of his old shirts, and placed the tractors on a dirt road horizontal sashing and trees in the vertical sashing. I added billowing blue cloud fabric for the sky. I sew because I love knowing that when I make a memory quilt, it becomes a tangible item to snuggle under and be reminded of those we love. I enjoy reliving memories from every shirt I cut and sew and telling those stories when I deliver the quilt. I have been sewing since childhood, now 52. I was able to take it up full time again about 7 years ago and love every minute of it."

 

Thank you for sharing Anita, and congratulations!

Baby Quilt

 

This is Hawley. He was born on leap day back in 2016. This energetic, talkative little boy is now 3 years old. Opinionated and full of hilarious sentences; his baby quilt hangs on his crib waiting for him to be old enough to fully appreciate a blanket.  

I have been quilting for about 14 years. My mom is a quilting queen and has continued to inspire my love for this craft. I am so happy to share my efforts with both of my babies, as well as all kinds of my friends' babies!

We want to encourage you to share your passion of this craft with those you love, and those who need the gift of warmth and love. That's why we've created the "Why I Sew" campaign. We want to see your quilts with their owners! Thank you for participating!
