Making a World of Difference One Quilt at a Time – Inspiring Stories about Quilters and How They Have Touched Lives
Making a World of Difference One Quilt at a Time presents more than fifty true stories about people who use their skills to help others. Whether stitching simple quilts for homeless charities, creating works of art for national fund-raisers, or making custom quilts for children with cancer, quilters have found countless ways to impact lives.
This book came about because the author, herself a long-time quilter, also makes charitable quilts for local and international organizations. Her first book, What I Learned from God While Quilting, started her on a journey to tell quilters' stories. She now continues with scores of new stories about quilters around the world and the good causes they support.
In addition, each inspirational chapter includes links and contact information to help readers get involved too.
