The Goodbye Quilt

"A quilt is an object of peculiar intimacy. By the virtue of the way it's created, every inch of the fabric is touched. Each scrap absorbs the quilter's scent & the invisible oils of her skin, the smell of her household and thanks to the constant pinning & stitching, her blood in the tiniest of quantities. And tears, though she might be loath to admit." ~ excerpt from The Goodbye Quilt by Susan Wiggs
