MAKING A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE ONE QUILT AT A TIME: Inspiring Stories about Quilters & How They Have Touched Lives
Quilts exemplify precious things: comfort through the warmth they provide; community, since they are often created by groups; and love, given the time and effort they require. With this in mind, legions of kindhearted quilters all over the world choose to donate their labors of love to people in need. Ruth McHaney Danner has gathered fifty-four heartwarming stories of quilters who make their compassion tangible one stitch, square, and quilt at a time. Each story introduces a quilter or group of quilters, ranging from a blind woman in Texas to preschoolers in Australia. Their gifts have the power to make recipients feel cherished and supported, even though they may never meet face-to-face. These wonderfully inspiring stories show that every quilter who has ever wondered, “But what can I do?” can do something to reach out and help others.
Ruth McHaney Danner, has written extensively for various publications. She has made dozens of quilts for charitable organizations and for individuals in need, and many of her projects have won awards. Her sewing room in Spokane, Washington, overflows with stacks of fabric, bags of scraps, and an endless supply of UFOs (unfinished objects).
I had a chance to read a few of the stories in this book, they are truly inspiring. One story tells about quilters who come together in every state across the U.S. to make quilts for sick children in hospitals. There's even a link at the end of the story about how you can help! This book is a great read for anyone and everyone. Even if your not a quilter or sewer, you will love these short, inspiring stories about people's generous, giving hearts.
