For Orlando Modern Quilt Guild

Yesterday was my birthday, and I got a tonne of birthday wishes via the internet.  These messages came at the most perfect time!  For days, I have been trying to respond to the act of hate that killed so many of my ‘tribe’ in Orlando.   I don’t understand hate.  I don’t know how to respond to hate. But I knew that I had to do something or that hate would suck me in and I would hate back.  So I decided to make a quilt for the Orlando Modern Quilt Guild.  They are coordinating the collection of quilts for the survivors, the families of the victims, and the first responders. All day, while I sewed, my computer ‘dinged’ with birthday wishes.  All day, I read them and poured their love into my quilt.   There is so much love in this quilt, thanks to all of those loving birthday messages!   And during the process, I started to see that love is so much stronger than hate. Love over hate.  Always.
