Quilting is a way to (re-)connect with people
Because what better way to tell people you care than a Quilt?
That's also why I made this quilt. It's called the Redemption Quilt because it's to let two lost childhood friends know that I care. Watch the video to get the whole story:

Connection with people can be hard
Connection with people can be very hard. Especially if you are traumatized, feel at odds with the world, or your brain works different than the norm.
Quilting has been my saviour. One reason for that is because it taught me how to connect with people. Making a quilt for someone was my way of showing I cared.
Also, quilting, and especially the quilts that came from magical inspiration, showed me that I do actually care, matter, and can be part of communities, just the way I am.
And one thing I've learned on my way back to humanity is that openness about one's feelings creates connection.
It might even be able to restore connection! As I've learned from a dear old friend. Because the Redemption Quilt was received well and we are slowly reconnecting!
Connection is also the Magic of Quilting.
