My husband just doesn't understand the point of buying long pieces of fabric only to cut them up into smaller pieces and then sew them back together to make a quilt. He thinks it's ridiculous.
As far as I could tell from our conversation and her body language she agreed with him. I was surprised because I'd never before heard anyone be so adamant against quilts. But because I don't have a ready wit, I didn't have a response. A few days later, when it was really too late to say it, I thought,
I guess it's like cutting up long pieces of lumber to make a floor . . . .
I feel sad to think that they misinterpret the love that goes into a quilt given as a gift, the joy of sleeping under a handmade quilt, and the beauty of such a quilt.
Do you know anyone who is anti-quilting?
