The tears flowed – 1776, Heartache, Heritage and Happiness.

This year it significant because last night I gave my 1776, Heartache, Heritage and Happiness Quilt to the International Quilt Study Centre and Museum and the tears flowed. My heart is heavy, but happy, knowing I’ve done the right thing to continue the legacy and life of the quilt.

Its a huge wrench to part with part of my soul, part of my life for so many years and part of my families history. However, it’s going to be shared now rather than live its life in a safe at home. I hope its viewed by people who love it as much as I do and I know I will visit often.
