    Thanks so much for this opportunity to see the entire film. I am fascinated by this story and was fortunate to see the traveling display at the DeYoung Museum in San Francisco some years ago.

  2. Peggy M. says:

    I’ve read many of the comments preceding mine. They are all spot on! Quilts and quilting mean friendship, family, creativity, history, love and fun… And so much more

    I would love to watch this DVD and then share it . Looking forward to reading more on your blog and I just signed up after learning about you on up the blog your last week.

    I believe that quilts really matter in our lives because they are always a connection to our past and provide us with wonderful memories of the love and dedication of those who made them.

  5. Susan McGuire says:

    Quilts feed the soul of the maker, comfort and wrap the recipient in love, and visually, they can please an audience.

  6. Tabitha Keener says:

    I think quilts matter to the maker because it is a piece of art they created which cannot be exactly reproduced again. I love giving these to family and friends when I can so they know how much I care. Thanks for a chance!

  7. Susan Cropp says:

    I grew up with my Mom making quilts every winter. They were scraps sewed together to make a beautiful quilt. I can look at them and pick out pieces that remind me of the clothes that Mom had made me. What precious treasures of the “good old days”.

  8. Cindy Wienstroer says:

    Quilts are a way to create something beautiful that only you can see until it is done and wrapping around those you love! Gee’s Bend quilts and Amish Quilts were my 1st intro to beautiful simplicity. Thanks for the chance to see all of “Why Quilts Matter”
