A Charity Quilt -
What does it mean to you?
What it means to me:
A quilt that will given to someone I probably do not know.
But what if that quilt WAS given to someone that I know - or that knows me??
I still want that quilt to hold up to many washings and hard use. (Hopefully, not abused - but the line gets murky between hard use and abuse)
I would not want to be embarrassed to have my name as the maker of it emblazoned on it.
I want it to look "planned/intentional" versus "scraps off the floor" or "clean out the closet" - even if it was made of "scraps off the floor"
Material can be decent/good, even if relatively inexpensive.
Workmanship - it's as easy to sew at least a 1/4 inch seam as a 1/16 inch one.
I want it to be clean when it leaves my custody.
If a practice piece is truly a disaster - why would someone else cherish it?
Who knows? Someday, I or someone near and dear to me might be on the receiving end.
