Good day everyone. Sometime in the summer months, I submitted an essay to Quilting Arts magazine, in response to their call for “The Last Word”. The Last Word is, not coincidentally, on the last page of each issue of the magazine. The subject matter of the essay was, basically, “What is your quilting legacy?”
Amazingly, my essay was chosen to be published in this month’s issue! December, 2018. I was so delighted when Vivika DeNegre the Editorial Director of the magazine (which is owned by F+W Media) contacted me to let me know my writing and photos would fill the last page of the last issue of this year. Yippee!
It’s a curious thing; to write about what one would like to leave behind when they are no longer here. Can quilts become your legacy? Will your loved ones appreciate the meaning behind the quilts you have made? Is there a little piece of your heart that resides in each and every quilt you have ever made?
If you’d like to get yourself a copy of this month’s Quilting Arts magazine, you may do so here –
I’d love to hear about your quilting legacy! Leave me a comment and I will read it.
Thanks so much.
