I've seen these quilts in person. They're beautiful. I didn't stitch a square, but they're amazing.
I wish they didn't exist.
Only because I wish they didn't have to exist.
But they do, and they're a tribute to the people lost, and the way we stitchers tend to deal with trauma. We pull out our needle and fabric. We pour our grief into our work and make beauty from loss.
9 years out, I hope our souls are starting to heal. I hope we can spend the next 9 years healing the world.
