That's a piece of art! I like your color selection.

Thank you so much for sharing. Your story made my eyes fill with some tears. First of all I LOVE your quilt! I love how you put all the peaces together, not by any firm model but just by how you felt was right. Then I love the idea to treat each part of the quilt as a storyboeard on its own. Very inspiring!

I started sewing a dress 4 years ago and never finished it. I gained weight and I lost, and each time I had to change something on the dress to fit it. Now I think that maby It wasnt time to fit in it yet. I am inspired now ti finish it.
I have so many fabrics on stash that I adore, also from my childhood since my mother kept it all. Maby I should make a quilt with all these litle memories.

I hope you found a comfortable place to stay, and that you keep sharing your words through the beauttyful things you make.  Kiss

It's a beautiful quilt, and it sounds like it was a cathartic process in making it.  As rough as it sounds like it has been for you, I bet that quilt wouldn't have turned out quite so wonderful and brimming with love and feelings if you hadn't made it through all of that.

sometime the story behind the project is just as intriguing as the project!  Thanks for sharing... your little birds, they will fly away and plant seeds of inspiration across the web!

Beautiful! I love the embellishments! This is a refreshing change from the ultra-uniform quilts in my quilting magazines.

Thank you so much for sharing your quilt and your story. I visit Craftster everyday and am in awe of all the creativity but it is your story that really makes this post special. I commend you on your bravery and honesty. I have been tinkering with the idea of making a quilt of my late grandfathers clothes and needed the push this story gives me. Thankyou

May those who love us love us.
And those that don't love us,
May God turn their hearts.
And if He doesn't turn their hearts,
May he turn their ankles,
So we'll know them by their limping.

Wow, that quilt and story is amazing. Thank you for sharing. Not everyone is able to share thing so eloquently as you did through both your words and your quilt!

Really love this quilt for some many reasons. First aesthetically. I love the colors, the strips, the placement of the scraps to make things even.
second, the details, screen printing, embroidery, crochet, etc, so many things that show how much you put into this piece.
I can tell this project has made you stronger and more beautiful inside and out. It's touching and wonderful!
Congrats for finishing your project, and for becoming a stronger person!

Your quilt is a gorgeous work of art.  I must ask, since I am just outside of STL, what is this "Anthro" place that you speak of.  I've never heard of it and I am intrigued about something that could inspire such a beautiful piece. 

I need a house with a craft room!

Thank you all for the wonderful replies.

TAHINAZ - I like looking at and reading some of the articles in quilting magazines. And I think the projects themselves are terrific, but I can't make things that well-measured and evenly assembled even when I try. So I stopped trying to do that and just went on the basics I knew about quilt piecing and assembly.

TheBeezKneez - I'm really kind of happy that my story helped inspire you like that. I love seeing projects with reused or repurposed parts, especially when they have family and personal history behind them.

Lunapooka  - The name is actually Anthropologie and it's in the Galleria. Just take the Eager Rd exit from 64 or 170 and make  right onto Brentwood. The stuff they have changes all the time and you can see a lot of pictures on their website, but browsing the web and looking at textile items has no comparison for actually being in the store where you can touch it and really get a good look at it.
