Karma Quilts: One Woman's Labor of Love Offering

The patchwork quilt is really the symbol of the world which must come: one new design made out of many old designs. We will stitch this world together yet. Don’t give up.

Karma Quilts: One Woman’s Labor of Love Offering

“In her heartwarming book, My Grandfather’s Blessings, Rachel Remen says, “You do not need money to be a philanthropist. We all have assets. You can befriend life with your bare hands.” I am grateful for being able to befriend life with my bare hands through the making of quilts and prayer shawls.” Jane Jackson is a mother, grandmother, former mid-wife, writer and much more.

In this gentle piece– that includes a beautiful slideshow of her work– she describes the evolution of her pay-it-forward initiative, Karma Quilts, and the patchwork of people, places and events that shaped her quilting journey. { read more }
